Having provided services in Queensland since 2009 it is a significant milestone that Neami has been successful in its bid to deliver a new Community Care Unit (CCU) model in Cairns. This exciting new service will be provided in partnership with Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service (CHHS).
In developing the program the CHHS recognised heightened community expectations for access to a wide range of support options and prioritised securing an innovative service model for the Cairns region.
This is the first time in Queensland that a community mental health service will be fully contracted as the provider of a Community Care Unit. We look forward to this exciting opportunity to demonstrate the calibre of our work in supporting the Cairns community.
