Community Mental Health Services

Community Mental Health Services treat and support people experiencing mental illness within their community.

Community based care means treating people in their homes rather than in hospital by providing a range of support that aims to meet the needs of the person experiencing metal illness.

This care is achieved through: Regular visits by a lead clinician  who can help to coordinate treatment and care,having regular review by a treating team, being linked into other supports in the community, having access to hospital support if required and having options of being linked into group programs within the community.
