Mental health services on Lower North Shore, Sydney

  • Mike Slade (a1)
Extract

This paper describes mental health services in the Lower North Shore (LNS) catchment area of Sydney, Australia, and is based on a visit made in early 1994. The local population of 170,000 is predominantly Caucasian, but there are also groups from other ethnic backgrounds. The mental health service has about 800 registered clients, with 60 new clients each month, the majority of whom have a serious mental illness. Since the service has won several awards, it may be instructive to review its structure and function.
