Adult Mental Health Program
The Adult Mental Health program of North Metropolitan Health Service Mental Health (NMHS MH) provides inpatient, rehabilitation and community services through hospital inpatient units, rehabilitation centres and community clinics across the north metropolitan area.
Our mission is to create an environment where individuals, their families, communities, and services work together to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of all individuals in our care.
Services provided by the Adult program are targeted at people 18 to 65 years of age with mental illness. Inpatient units provide voluntary and involuntary short-term inpatient management of adults during an acute phase of mental illness until sufficient recovery allows the person to be treated effectively in a community-based setting. Inpatient care is also provided for those patients who have long-term mental illness who are unable to cope within the range of community supported services. The Adult Hospital in the Home (HiTH) Service provides daily mental health care in the home of eligible consumers who would otherwise require admission to hospital.
NMHS Mental Health adult community clinical services provide a wide range of community services, including:
- Emergency and non-urgent psychiatric services to adults aged 18 to 65 years who have a mental illness.
- Mental health consultation, urgent and non-urgent assessments.
- Multidisciplinary community rehabilitation services for the individual’s mental illness.
The goal of treatment is to work collaboratively with clients, families, carers and other organisations to improve health outcomes for these individuals.
