Far West Area Health Service mental health integration project



This project delivers mental health services to people with a mental illness in rural and remote regions within the western districts of New South Wales. The aim of this project is to deliver these services in more appropriate and efficient ways and to give community health teams, general practitioners and other local agencies broader support from public and private psychiatric consultants.
