Mental health conditions are wide ranging. People can experience different mental health challenges at different times in their lives or following different life experiences.
A number of Ramsay Mental Health services offer a general mental health ward, to care for patients experiencing general mental health issues and mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression.
The Community Outreach Program provides mental health treatment and therapeutic support to enable individuals to recover, develop coping strategies and maintain wellness. The program seeks to minimise the disruption that can occur in a person’s day to day living by reducing the length and frequency of hospital stays and providing recovery focused community care.
Referrals can be made by general practitioners and psychiatrists by completing a Mental Health Services Referral form and faxing to the Mental Health Triage Team at Victoria Court Fax (03) 9210 3225.
Please contact us on 03 9210 3155 to enquire about special self-funded rates, health fund rebates and work cover funding.
