How to access our services
So you or a loved one are in need of some support for a mental health condition but aren’t exactly sure where to start?
If you’ve come to the conclusion that something isn’t quite right, your first step is to speak to your GP.
Your GP will work with you to write a Mental Health Treatment plan and refer you to a mental health specialist like a psychologist, social worker, occupational therapists or psychiatrist. This treatment plan looks at your mental health needs and goals, and outlines treatment options and support services to reach those goals.
When speaking to a healthcare professional, you need to remember to try and be as open and honest about how you are feeling as possible. Ask lots of questions about what support options are available to you and questions about your own feelings. This will help you gain a better understanding of the journey ahead.
If you GP or psychiatrist thinks it’s important for you to attend a hospital for either inpatient or outpatient programs, they will arrange admission to one of our hospitals via each site-specific Intake Department.
