Older Adult Mental Health Sub Network
The Mental Health Network includes a unique Sub Network structure.
The Older Adult Mental Health Sub Network was established on 12 August 2016, to address the difficulty in coordinating such a large network and to support the Mental Health Network to engage with and improve outcomes for specific cohorts of mental health service users.
The establishment of the Older Adult Mental Health Sub Network followed a thorough process that sought to be inclusive, representative and reflect the concerns and views of the sector.
The Older Adult Mental Health Sub Network has a broad membership that is supported by a Steering Group and is sponsored by the North Metropolitan Health Service, who provide administrative support.
The Steering Group is co-chaired by Dr Angela McAleer and Ms Clare Bestow.
