Request for Proposal

Services for people with severe and complex mental illness 

Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) is working at the regional level to identify the health needs of our community and respond appropriately through the effective commissioning of services. This includes a greater focus on the integration of mental health services into primary health care and reducing the complexity and fragmentation of the existing mental health system. 
The Request for Proposal (RFP) for services for people with severe and complex mental illness is a significant step in this journey. It is intended that this RFP supports and encourages innovation and provides the space for non-traditional models of service delivery to be considered to meet consumer needs. 
The following service components that form the basis of this RFP are priority areas that were identified through the GCPHN co-design process. These are important to the Gold Coast community and are requried in a service response to meet the needs of people with severe and complex mental illness. 
Service components: 
  1. Service information, referral pathways, triage and intake across the stepped care model
  2. Clinical care coordination, including the transition of consumers accessing the Mental Health Nurse program and;
  3. Community based safe space.

Applicant organisations are offered the opportunity to meet with GCPHN to discuss their application approach prior to submitting an application. The following dates and times are available:
