Psychologist talking with patient

Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. It is a national health priority for Primary Health Networks and Murray PHN funds a range of services to help people get the care they need – because the earlier a person can receive help, the better the chance of their recovery is.
