Mental Health Support in RACFs
This new program will help address the current gap in mental health support in RACFs by providing psychological services similar to those available to people in the community under Medicare.
The pilot will initially take place in two RACFs, Uniting Springwood and Uniting Hawkesbury Richmond, for a period of six-months. During the pilot, an experienced mental health nurse will be providing support to residents identified as being affected by mild to moderate mental illness.
A GP Referral is needed to access this service. Telehealth is available by request. Please talk to your GP for more information.
