Adult Community Mental Health Service
What we do?
Community Mental Health Services are distinct from inpatient mental health services, and play a vital role in supporting people between 18 to 65 years old in the community with a severe mental illness and psychiatric disability throughout the recovery process.
Community Mental Health Services support people with psychiatric disability to manage their self-care, improve social and relationship skills and achieve broader quality of life via physical health, social connectedness, housing, education and employment.
