CHILD AND ADOLESCENT MENTAL HEALTH SERVICE PROJECT

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

A new child and adolescent mental health facility will be built at Nepean Hospital to meet the health needs of young people in Western Sydney who experience mental illness.

This is an important and exciting project for the Nepean Redevelopment team and we look forward to working with staff, young people and carers to create a great new, patient-centred service.

The facility is part of the NSW government’s $700 million State Wide Mental Health Infrastructure Program (SWMHIP), which supports the delivery of mental health care reform in NSW.

We are currently in the early planning and design stage for the 10-bed child and adolescent mental health unit. A time frame for completion will be known when planning has progressed.
Young people and families attended a focus group to discuss their specific needs and share ideas to inform the design of the new facility.
