​The Werribee Mercy Psychiatric Unit (WMPU) works hand in hand with partners in the community to provide inpatient care for patients who are experiencng acute episodes of mental illness. WMPU caters for those who cannot be safely cared for at home, or in a less restrictive community setting.

Our dedicated and experienced nursing, medical and allied health professionals work as a multi-disciplinary team to assist patients in their recovery.

Situated in Werribee, the WMPU admissions are available to those who reside in the City of Maribyrnong areas, Hobsons' Bay and Wyndham.

The WMPU currently has capacity for 29 patients, and will shorty be redeveloped into a state of the art 50 bed, (plus 4 short stay bed) facility to cater for population growth, and increased demand. Completion is expected in mid-2016.
