Information for Providers of Mental Health Nurse Incentive Program (MHNIP) services

The Mental Health Nurse Incentive Program (MHNIP) funds community-based general practices, private psychiatric practices and other appropriate organisations so they can employ mental health nurses to help provide coordinated clinical care for people with severe mental disorders.

Mental health nurses work with psychiatrists and general practitioners to provide services like monitoring a patient’s mental state, managing their medication and improving links to other health professionals and clinical service providers.

These services can be provided in a range of settings, like clinics or patients’ homes,  at no cost to the patient.

The National MHNIP Guidelines provide information to organisations that provide MHNIP services.
