Bendigo getting new Psychiatric facility

A brand new specialised psychiatric facility in Bendigo will provide 80 mental health beds for Bendigo and the surrounding area.  Minister for Mental Health Mary Wooldridge said that people with mental illnesses would be offered unique care in the centre, which is designed to combine services on one site.  The project would include an integrated psychiatric facility that combined all bed-based psychiatric services with other inpatient services on the one site which would be a first for Victoria.
