Local residents experience some of the country’s highest levels of urban social disadvantage characterised by homelessness, chronic mental illness, substance misuse and other complex general health needs.
St Vincent’s proudly provides a comprehensive range of services and interventions to care for these patients in need. Services include:
- The Centre for Family Based Mental Health Care – an initiative developing new family and community based models of mental health care, led by a newly appointed Professor of Mental Health Care.
- Uspace – a private mental health inpatient and outpatient service for 16 to 30 year olds with severe and emerging mental health problems.
- Caritas Mental Health Unit – providing round-the-clock care to patients experiencing acute episodes of mental illness.
We urgently need your help to upgrade and refurbish our mental health facilities, while also developing new programs for patients. Please donate today to help our clinicians continue to deliver the best care to some of our most vulnerable and marginalised patients.
