Event description

Description

Eastern Melbourne PHN (EMPHN) invites you to a briefing for GPs and Practice Managers on the Mental Health Stepped Care Model.

About the Mental Health Stepped Care Model

Our new Stepped Care Model highlights the important contribution of General Practices in the primary health sector particularly in providing comprehensive care for consumers.

EMPHN has held a number of information sessions and workshops over the past 12 months to inform this new model and recently invited feedback on the attached Mental Health Stepped Care Discussion Paper.

Agenda for upcoming briefings:

  • Introduction to the Stepped Care Model
  • Information on how consumers will access the service and support types
  • Understanding of referral pathways into, through and out of the Stepped Care Model and how it interfaces with general practice
  • Transition arrangements for current clinicians and consumers
  • An opportunity to provide feedback on the role of general practice in the Stepped Care Model
  • An opportunity to have input into the intake, referrals and assessment process

The Stepped Care Model seeks to address the service gaps for hard to reach groups, continuity of care for existing clients, while ensuring the model allows for variations in severity of mental illness consumers will experience in order to access the right care, at the right time, in the right place.

For information about the development of the model and engagement with stakeholders, visit our website.
