Additionally, because of their illness, consumers may have had frequent and unplanned admissions and/or intensive interventions which are not crisis related and they now require high intensity and frequent follow-up to remain well in the community. There may also be a history of non-engagement and/or non-adherence with traditional mental health services or treatments. The mental health clinician will provide services within a whole team approach in a way that is least intrusive, collaborative, recovery oriented, nominated primary carer and family responsive and inclusive, rehabilitative, encourages self-advocacy, facilitates empowerment and capacity for optimal independent function.
