Market Sounding Sessions for New Models of Service Delivery

Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drugs  (AOD) support service providers are invited to attend one of a series of upcoming market sounding sessions as Western Victoria Primary Health Network (WVPHN) moves toward a place-based model when commissioning services in the future.

WVPHN is committed to aligning future mental health and AOD service we commission with key state and federal government recommendations including those from the Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System and is keen to get the perspective of support service providers.

In 2021, we took the first step by consulting with health providers and clients as part of a co-design process. From that process, proposed new service models have been developed.

We now want to work with service providers through market sounding sessions to understand the feasibility of these new models. The market sounding will also investigate opportunities to support developing partnerships to deliver services.

Mental health and AOD support organisations and services – large and small – are invited to take part in the market sounding. This also includes both current and non-current providers in the WVPHN region.

Please attend the session/s in the area/areas most relevant to your organisation.

Please note, all sessions will be delivered online via Microsoft Teams.
