Information for patients, parents and carers
General information about the emergency department
Resources developed by NSW Health to inform patients about the processes and people in the Emergency Department.
The 1800 011 511 Mental Health Line has been established to ensure that people with a mental health problem, their families and carers can access the care they need whenever and wherever they need it.
It is not an emergency service so people in a life threatening situation must still call 000 to receive immediate help.
It will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will provide a telephone triage assessment and referral service staffed by mental health clinicians. It will also be used to provide advice about clinical symptoms, the urgency of the need for care and local treatment options for service providers, such as general practitioners, police and ambulance officers.
