Proposed 2022 Community Mental Health Service Model of Care Consultation

Community Mental Health Services is an important part of the South Australian mental health system. We are committed to providing a specialist mental health service to our consumers.

To meet this commitment and ensure our services are contemporary and consumer centred the Mental Health Clinical Program (MHCP) has reviewed how Community Mental Health Services’ are delivered to address the impact of severe mental health illness in our community.

This has resulted in the development of the proposed 2022 Community Mental Health Service Model of Care which describes how we will work with you and the services we will provide to support your care needs.

The proposed 2022 Community Mental Health Service Model of Care is not a new service but rather a reorganisation of services that matches your care needs. We are moving to a service model where your care coordinator supports you to live well and stay well in the community depending on where you are in your journey to recovery. There will be a seven-day service for consumers who need increased short-term care and a five-day dedicated recovery service. We will also support our services with a dedicated Youth Service that operates 5 days.
