Community care

Metro North Community Mental Health Services

The continuing care teams—also known as community mental health teams—provide mental health assessment and treatment services to people aged 18 years and over who are affected by complex mental illness.

Some continuing care teams provide support to specific target groups such as young people with first presentation psychosis (early psychosis), aged persons (older persons mental health services), and people who need intensive community follow-up support (mobile intensive rehabilitation team).

You can access continuing care teams via an inpatient or acute care team referral.

The continuing care teams will help you to understand your illness and ways to reduce or cope with symptoms.

You and your support person (family, a friend or carer) will be guided to groups in your community to enhance your quality of life. There are a number of specialist services available including healthy living groups, anxiety management and education forums. Our consumer and carer workforce have a lived experience of mental illness and can offer support on your recovery journey.

A continuing care team provides a range of mental health interventions including information, assessment, case management, treatment, support, consultations and referral for adults.
