Tenders open for primary mental health services
07 Jun 2017
SEMPHN is seeking organisations to deliver a Mental Health Integrated Complex Care (MHICC) service in one or more Local Government Areas (LGAs) within our catchment.
MHICC services are designed to support consumers with a severe mental illness who have complex needs and will benefit from improved coordination of their care over long periods.
The services are highly flexible and matched to individual needs.
The four main parts of a MHICC service are:
• clinical nursing services
• family support and liaison
• care co-ordination and liaison (clinical and non-clinical services)
• improving access to psychiatrist and psychological care.
MHICC services will be available for population groups that are harder to reach or underserviced and can’t currently access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or Partners In Recovery (PIR).
MHICC will replace Mental Health Nurse Incentive Program (MHNIP) later this year.
MHICC services are part of our Mental Health Stepped Care Model and are in line with Australia-wide changes in mental health services.
