PRIMA is the new Access and Referral Service for mental health referrals on the Central Coast. PRIMA is managed by an experienced mental health team who assess all referrals to determine the level of care required.

In the past, referrals could only be submitted on the 1st and 15th of each month, but now referrals are able to be submitted to the PRIMA team at any time.
