- Belconnen Mental Health Team
The role of the Adult Community Mental Health Teams located in Belconnen is the provision of specialist mental health assessment and treatment services by multi-disciplinary teams of medical and non- medical clinical staff. Treatment approaches are based on best available clinical evidence with an emphasis on positive outcomes that are tailored to an individual consumer’s needs.
High risk assessments are managed taking into account the specific circumstances and the response indicated. Consultation services to General Practitioners are provided at each Team. On receipt of the GP referral for consultation, an appointment is made. For referrals for ongoing care with low to moderate risk, an assessment will be made by a mental health clinician. The assessment will be considered by the multi-disciplinary team who will communicate with the General Practitioner on the outcome. Liaison with community agencies as well as General Practitioners will occur.
The Adult Community Mental Health Teams primarily provide services to the residents of their local area. Under the principles of the 'no wrong door' approach, teams will respond to all presentations and facilitate assessment and referral to the appropriate area or service. The Adult Community Teams provide information and education on mental illness including treatment options and co-ordination of care with community agencies. Recovery principles guide the working relationship with consumers, carers and other stakeholders.
