Lismore cafe

As the cultural and economic capital of the region, Lismore offers all the city conveniences with the lifestyle advantages of country living. 

It's renowned for its extraordinary natural beauty, amazing cultural diversity, relaxed lifestyle and quirky charms; a place where old school blends with new age and nature sets the pace. 


Grafton river and town

As a commercial and professional hub, Grafton is one of NSW’s most dynamic and fastest growing regions. 

It's renowned for its colourful Jacaranda trees and with a vibrant events calendar of exhibitions, markets, shows and sports throughout the year, you’ll never be short of something to do.

Tweed Heads

Tweed beach

Ideally located just south of the QLD/NSW border, Tweed Heads allows ease of access to a lifestyle of choice, whether it be the country or the coast. 

It's a vibrant seaside holiday destination, offering nature-based experiences with five world heritage listed national parks, kilometres of untouched, pristine beaches and world-class surf breaks. 

I came to Lismore for the job that was on offer but decided to stay because of the people. I have found all the staff to be warm, friendly, welcoming, but more surprisingly eager and welcoming of change.

Dr Edward Wims
Clinical Director, Lismore Mental Health Services

The clinical experience in Lismore is quite different to city psychiatry. I feel I am seeing a much more varied range of personalities and conditions. My work is appreciated, and I feel I am really contributing and making a difference.

Dr Spencer Duke
Consultant Psychiatrist, Lismore Adult Inpatient Mental Health Unit

There is a University Centre for Rural Health collocated with opportunities to teach and collaborate in research.

Dr Therese Grotowski
Consultant Psychiatrist, Lismore Community Mental Health

We have an advantage over other rural areas, with a core group of Psychiatrists who permanently live in the area, rather than FIFO Psychiatrists in other rural health districts.

Dr. Justine Hoey Thompson
Consultant Psychiatrist, Clinical Director, Tuckeroo Sub Acute mental health unit, Byron Bay

The Northern NSW Mental Health Service is on a journey to become a regional centre of excellence in Mental Health Care. We are forward-looking and committed to providing care that is evidence based, compassionate and trauma informed.
