The ward has 15 beds and is well supported with a talented MDT and links closely with community services so that young people can be discharged to continue their recovery in the community as soon as possible. The service is a large and diverse mental health service which can offer you unprecedented research opportunities and academic affiliations given its relationships with universities in Melbourne.
