Mercy Health provides acute hospital admission and treatment for adults living within the Maribyrnong, Hobsons Bay and Wyndham municipalities.
Our aim is to provide care for people experiencing mental illness in the least restrictive environment.
Usually this is in a community setting. However, if a person is too unwell to be safely managed in the community, admission to a psychiatric unit will be considered to assist in treating the acute phase of the illness. This unit provides short term acute treatment only. People are discharged as soon as they are well enough. Once the illness improves, we will support the person to continue their recovery in a community setting.
Referrals to the Mercy adult Psychiatric Units can be made through the mental health triage service: 1300 657 259.
