Community Adult Mental Health

The NMHS Mental Health, Public Health and Dental Services (MHPHDS) Community Adult Mental Health Service work in partnership with service providers and consumer and carer stakeholders to deliver mental health treatment in a community clinic or home setting. Services can be accessed when required, and are person centred, focused on evidence-based treatment which is culturally and spiritually sensitive to individual needs. Care plans developed in collaborative partnership with the consumer, family, carer and other services are practical and achievable to promote sustained recovery.

Community clinics are situated at Joondalup, Butler, Mirrabooka, Osborne Park and Subiaco.

The clinics are staffed by multidisciplinary teams including Medical staff, Psychologists, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Welfare Officers, Aboriginal Mental Health Workers and Peer Support Workers, and supported by General Practice Liaison Officers and Community Development Officers. Services are coordinated by Community Treatment Teams, Assessment and Treatment Teams, Intensive Clinical Outreach Teams, NMHS MH Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Teams, Obstetric Liaison Consultation Service and Post-natal Teams.

Community Adult Mental Health also includes the Neuromodulation Service and the Creative Expression Centre for Arts Therapy (CECAT), a therapeutic creative arts service that utilises a range of creative mediums and processes to assist in mental illness recovery.
