About Mental Health Services
Cumberland Hospital is a mental health facility that provides primary and secondary mental health services to the local population, and tertiary acute, extended and forensic mental health services to greater western Sydney and NSW.
We work in conjunction with five community-based mental health teams providing community acute care, case management and recovery services and provide access to specialist mental health input and consultation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is also a range of community mental health residential facilities, recovery support and specialist treatment services located on the campus.
Cumberland Hospital is part of the Mental Health Network of Western Sydney Local Health District, which provides treatment for patients of any age, with a community care and recovery focus. Assessments are available at community centres or after hours at the hospitals.
Within Cumberland, there are three specialist admissions units (Paringa, Riverview and Hainsworth), one forensic inpatient unit (Bunya), one specialist high dependency unit (Yaralla) and six non-acute rehabilitation units (Banksia, Boronia, Acacia, Jarrah, Willow and Waratah). Currently there are approximately 261 inpatient beds within Cumberland.
Cumberland Hospital is a teaching hospital for nursing, social work, occupational therapy and psychology students.
