What we do

Brisbane South PHN designs, develops and commissions place-based mental health services that deliver connected care. We do this in partnership with people who use the health system, their close supporters and carers, local communities, General Practitioners, community and hospital services. Brisbane South PHN plays a strategic role to strengthen the primary health systems and improve health and wellbeing, reduce duplication, increase service quality and identify systems gaps and opportunities.

Within the new mental health model Brisbane South PHN will function as the ‘system facilitator’ and integrator of services. This will involve Brisbane South PHN playing an active role in the region in defining the outcomes that are important to individuals, and working with providers to align their efforts in achieving health outcomes.
