Clinical Care Coordination from a Mental Health Nurse.
Pathways is contracted through North Coast Primary Health Network (NCPHN) to provide clinical Mental Health Nursing Services.
GPs and Psychiatrists will determine which clients are eligible for Mental Health Nursing services. To be eligible, all of the following criteria must be met:
The Mental Health Nurses providing this service are all highly experienced and qualified. All of the specialist Mental Health Nurses providing these services are credentialled with the Australian College of Mental Health Nursing (ACMHN). We specialise in trauma informed care and work hard to engage with all clients.
To make a referral to our clinical care service please first make email contact with us. We will then be able to advise you on our availability and if able will allocate you a MH Nurse. We are not an out of hours service and do not cover weekends – if you feel your client is at risk and it is out of office hours please call the mental health access line below. The Mental Health Line is a 24-hour telephone service operating seven days a week across NSW.
Following referral to Pathways MH service you and your client receive a full report and recommendations regarding clinical care needs. The MH Nurse may also refer on to other agencies (if permitted by the client). All our client’s are asked to consent to having their details entered into a database called ‘Redicase’ and details of service contacts are made into Redicase after each contact (this is a requirement for services from NCPHN). There is no fee payable for this service but the eligibility above must be strictly adhered to.
It is the expectation of the RMO that they are available for consultation throughout the assessment, implementation and treatment period.

“I wrote ‘In Union; Jack’ to give a public voice to the conversations and reflections generated by people viewing ‘Uncle Jack’ by Jandamarra Cadd. The common theme shared with me was one of unity. Unity based on recognising that the shared kindred within us all is the key to honouring how our nation has been enriched by diversity. The manner in which this enrichment was embraced gives me hope for the continued growth of our nation. As this growth wasn’t about forgetting nor replacing our past, but on genuinely advancing Australia. I humbly hope that ‘In Union; Jack’ and ‘Uncle Jack’, in a way, encourages you to act as a custodian of our nation”.
