(a, b, e, f) (iii)

Public mental health services support multiple access points into the system (including the Walk-in Centres, Emergency Department presentation, community health centres, phone lines) where the person will be guided to the most appropriate service.

(2) (a) The pathways and services mentioned in the response to question 1, excluding the services identified in the response to question (2) (b), are operated by ACTHD, CHS and Calvary Hospital Bruce.

(b) The following services are operated by non-government organisations:

CHN, which has partnered with ACTHD, the Southern NSW Primary Health Network, and Southern NSW Local Health District, to implement HealthPathways across the ACT and Southern NSW. This receives Commonwealth and ACT Government funding;

Healthdirect, which receives funding from most jurisdictions and the Commonwealth; and

HCCA, which received funding from the ACT Government to undertake its work.

(3) (a) & (b) These navigation services and pathways are complementary by design. The intention is to provide multiple avenues to assist people to access and navigate the health system.

(4) (a) & (b) See response to question 3.

(5) The responsibility for revision of each of these services and pathways sits with the individual area responsible for the implementation of these initiatives.
