State-wide specialty services

State-wide specialty services

Metro North Mental Health offers three state-wide specialty services.

Eating disorders

The Queensland Eating Disorder Service provides assessment, care and treatment for people and their families affected by eating disorders. The service also provides advice, support, training and education for health professionals.

If you want to access the service, you need a Queensland eating disorder service referral form from your GP or health professional. Your referrer will need to send your referral letter to the hospital. You might wait up to six weeks after the hospital receives your referral for an outpatient appointment.

Victim support

Queensland Health Victim Support Service provides free, specialist state-wide counselling, support and information to victims of violent crime and their families.

These services are available before, during and after a mental health consumer has completed proceedings with the Mental Health Court (under the provisions of the Mental Health Act 2000).

Forensic mental health

The Forensic Mental Health Service provides timely and responsive services to meet the needs of mentally ill persons who have, or are at risk of involvement with the Criminal Justice System.
