Statewide and Tertiary Mental Health Services
Neurosciences Unit (NSU)
The Neurosciences Unit (NSU) is administered by North Metropolitan Health Service (NMHS) Mental Health and is located on the Graylands Campus on the corner of Mooro Drive and John XXIII Avenue, Mount Claremont.
The Neurosciences Unit is a statewide service that provides specialised diagnostic support to both private and public hospitals and community based services. Additionally, extensive services are offered to families affected by neurodegenerative disorders, such as Huntington’s Disease and people with dementia and related disorders.
Services are provided by a multi-disciplinary team consisting of clinical neuropsychologists, psychologists, social workers, speech pathologists. We also have on our adult/elderly team a consultant neurologist and consultant psychiatrist specialising in neurodegenerative disorders.
Children (over the age of six) and adults (all ages) with known or suspected brain impairment resulting from trauma, disease or genetic conditions can be referred.
A wide range of services are offered for families affected by Huntington’s Disease and other neurodegenerative disorders, including predictive testing and ongoing welfare management. In addition, we have an Assessment and Care Clinic for people less than 65 years of age with possible dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease and related disorders.
We cannot help with Emergency Services.
The Unit welcomes telephone discussion of potential referrals. Referral forms can be obtained from the Unit and should be returned to “The manager”.
Appointments can be arranged through the referring agency or directly with the client where appropriate.
When referral is for a neuropsychological assessment, clients should be advised that the assessment may take several hours and they will be mailed an appointment card, information brochure and map. All appointments for neuropsychological evaluation must be confirmed with this office prior to the appointment date.
