Assisting long-term patients to live in the community

People with enduring and severe mental illness experience better quality of life and improved social outcomes if they can maintain living in the community. A strong acute mental health service is important and inpatient care in NSW will continue to grow in line with community needs. In 2015-16, all 380 patients in existing long-term care will be assessed to determine individual requirements to transition from hospital to community, where possible. Eligibility for access to support packages under the National Disability Insurance Scheme will also be considered.Over the next two years, it is expected that up to 100 patients (around 25 per cent) will begin to transition to more appropriate care in the community.

Robyn Murray, Senior Project Manager and Deborah Hoban, Senior Project Officer would like to take this opportunity to speak with you about the Mental Health Hospital to Community Initiative.
