Stepped Care in Mental Health

All of our mental heath support services are delivered through the framework of our stepped care model. This means that a person is matched to an intervention level that most suits their immediate and changing needs.

Our stepped care model also needs to connect with other community and clinical mental health services available in the community.

Each support option is based on the best evidence we have about what works in mental health prevention, and recovery and the connections between support options are as integreated as we can make them. As PHNs are operating in their second year, we are still in transition from the former system to a new stepped care mental health support system.
