Summary The Nurse Practitioner – Mental Health model investigates the options for providing a service to a group of clients who present at Werribee and Western Emergency Departments (ED) and currently receive either limited mental health service or have an undiagnosed mental illness. This group comprises at risk young adults who do not meet the criteria for ongoing treatment in public mental health services at present. At risk young adults are those who fit known demographic variables for risk and have a risk catalyst (eg relationship break up) and a situational response to this (self harm). Mercy Mental Health Program service survey indicates gaps in services to this group using current referral pathway with potentially 40-70% lost to follow-up and a significant increase in risk for suicide.
