Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Services Community Hub – central Geelong
181 Moorabool Street,
The Victorian Government is investing $16 million to deliver a Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Services Community Hub in central Geelong.
The five-storey hub will provide greater access to treatment and support services for members of the community experiencing mental-ill health and addiction.
With extended operating hours, including over the weekend and public holidays, services offered at the hub will include assessment, care planning, treatment, wellbeing support, and education.
The hub will also include space for clinicians and researchers to come together and drive mental health service improvement through a learning health care system.
This investment builds on the work of the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System’s 74 recommendations to transform mental health support and care to make it accessible, flexible and responsive.
Geelong-based Lyons Construction has been appointed to deliver the multi-million-dollar facility.
