Longreach Mental Health Service
14 October 2013
Longreach Mental Health After Hours project launched
Health professionals in the Longreach area have collaborated on an After Hours Mental Health Orientation Package to help ensure that people with a mental illness receive the best care possible when presenting to a health facility after hours.
Discussion about the delivery of services after hours identified the need for simple, packaged information for health professionals to support proper referrals, assessment and follow up. The new resource is available for local General Practitioners, nursing/allied health professionals, medical students and other medical staff.
