We will continue to deliver services to our LinkSupport clients remotely.
Mental Health Services
Mental Health Services includes:
- Psychological Therapies
- Transitional Care
- Clinical Care Coordination
- Older Persons Mental Health Peer Program
- Mental Health Services in Residential Aged Care Facilities
Face to face visits in Residential Aged Care Facilities and Hospitals have been suspended at this time in line with Government recommendations. Services are being delivered remotely where possible.
Wherever possible, client sessions will be conducted via telephone or video conferencing. Where clients require face to face visits in the community, mental health staff will complete a health screening questionnaire over the phone, prior to each visit to determine the suitability for the visit to be conducted.
For services being delivered by our contractors, the clinicians have been advised that the use of telehealth solutions are strongly encouraged.
If you need to speak to someone about your mental health immediately
please call Lifeline 13 11 14 or Beyond Blue 1300 659 467
