Community Mental Health Services

Community Mental Health Services

The ‘front’ door to Mental Health Services for people of all ages is via the Mental Health Line 1800 011 511.  While not a counselling service the mental health professionals who answer calls will advise whether or not a person is in need of mental health services or would be better accessing another service.

 

Access Line

 

If the referral is appropriate, Community Mental Health Services will:

  • conduct a mental health assessment with the person referred
  • liaise with the person’s family/carers, GP and any other relevant service providers (with the person’s consent)
  • provide crisis and supportive community based mental health intervention wherever possible
  • facilitate admission to a general hospital or inpatient mental health unit if necessary
  • work with staff of local hospitals to provide treatment and support to patients with mental health problems
  • provide mental health management and treatment
  • work closely with Psychiatrists, inpatient services and GPs to ensure provision of the most effective care
  • provide case management, counselling and a range of therapies according to the client’s needs.
