Free assessment and referrals service for Western Sydney veterans 

St John of God Health Care, in conjunction with Western Sydney Primary Health Network, are proud to offer a free assessment program for Veterans.

The program provides access for Veterans to seek information on mental health services and Veteran entitlements, obtain a full clinical assessment and receive referrals to clinical, veteran, trauma or other health or social wellbeing services in their location.

The program is available for Veterans, their partners and children or other family members caring for those experiencing difficulties in the Wentwest Primary Health Network.
