Our registered Mental Health Connext team are highly qualified and are dedicated to providing supportive services, with a recovery focused approach.
By linking in with your GP and using our skills, expertise, empathetic approach, and networks, our team is able to provide individuals with support and guidance to assist them to develop a meaningful life; including an experienced Aboriginal mental health practitioner who ensures culturally appropriate services are offered.
Our team draws on various techniques including psychological therapies, therapeutic relationships and compassionate care management; and are able to support people with their psychiatric medication plan.
Our program provides a short-term support service tailored to your needs, that typically involves a review of your personal circumstances, providing emotional and psychological help while connecting you with local support services in a timely way.
With the full suite of Richmond Wellbeing services, your care practitioner can assist you to access services such as:
- Housing and accommodation support
- Culturally appropriate services
- At home support
- Community groups
This program is free for patients 18 years and over with a Mental Health Treatment Plan.
Care management is a way of supporting your high-level needs, by providing a consistent point of contact to support services. Once you are referred to the program, a regular care practitioner will keep you well informed, motivated and committed to your mental health plan and agreed goals.
