Acute Adult Inpatient Mental Health Service
What we do?
We provide a variety of interventions and therapies for adults who are experiencing acute symptoms of their mental health disorder and requires care within an inpatient setting. A person admitted to the unit can either be voluntary or involuntary under the NSW Mental Health Act (2007). A mental health clinician authorised by a consultant psychiatrist will conduct an assessment to determine whether an admission is the best option.
What to expect?
Our multidisciplinary team offers:
- Clinical treatment program
- Psychological interventions
- Function and vocation support

Specialities from medicine, nursing, social work, occupational therapy, diversional therapy, psychology, and peer support will work collaborative with the consumer as a team. Community mental health clinicians will also play a key role in providing individual care and support when the consumer is transitioning from hospital into the community.
