Care coordination services provide a single point of contact (via a Care Facilitator) for people (and their families/carers) with lived experience of mental illness and complex care needs.  Care Facilitators will be responsible for ensuring all of the patients’ care needs, clinical and non-clinical and as determined by a nationally consistent assessment tool, are being met (Commonwealth of Australia 2012).
