Community health centres
Community health centres aim to improve the health and well-being of residents through a range of health assessment, management and counselling services via direct walk-ins, telephone or referral.
Services include mental health, alcohol and drug services, health therapies, community nursing and health education programs. There is also counselling, support and treatment for anyone who may have social, emotional, psychiatric or relationship problems.
