Tandem eNews 20 February 2019

DHHS Review of Sub-acute Mental Health Services

Last week Tandem hosted the team from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) review of sub-acute mental health services at the bi-monthly Member Meeting. The review is intended to achieve improved access to sub-acute services, recovery orientated services, and opportunities for clinical staff to deliver evidenced-based interventions. More info

Tandem members provided feedback on strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for improvement to community care units (CCU), prevention and recovery care (PARC) services, and secure extended care units (SECU). The review team are keen to hear from everyone who would wish to talk to them. Tandem will collate and forward all additional contributions. Particularly, the review needs to know:

  1. Who are the consumers of PARC/CCU/SECU services, and their families and carers? What are their needs? Have these changed over time?
  2. What is the model of care for PARC/CCU/SECU? Is it recovery-orientated? How well does it work for consumers and their families and carers?
  3. What are the strengths of the PARC/CCU/SECU models or the PARC/CCU/SECU services you are familiar with?
  4. What would you change about these services?

Responses can be emailed to Anne Finch at Tandem. If you have any enquiries, please call us on 8803 5555.


Join consumer, carer and guest speakers at the Tandem offices on Friday 8 March to discuss what the Royal Commission into Mental Health means to women, and how you think we will know if the process has been successful.
