Tertiary Referral Service for Psychosis (Mindgardens)
Who is it for?
The Tertiary Referral Service for Psychosis (TRSP) is a state-wide service that offers intensive and individualised therapeutic approaches for people who live with complex psychotic disorders. Typically, such people have already tried multiple services and treatment approaches, often over many years, without finding support that is truly helpful to them.
What is it about?
The TRSP is a pilot service for NSW hosted by South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD) to improve the lives of adults living with complex psychotic illnesses. The TRSP is a consultation and liaison service supporting NSW in-patient and adult community mental health teams to formulate and implement individualised treatment-based, consumer-centred recommendations tailored to the resources available in the individual’s current settings.
The TRSP offers comprehensive multidisciplinary assessments utilising trauma and recovery-informed frameworks in collaborative care planning with individuals, their families/carers, and referring teams.

The TRSP is based at the Prince of Wales Hospital, SESLHD, and accepts appropriate referrals state-wide. We offer assessments by telehealth as well as in person.
The TRSP is underpinned by research, and aims to contribute to the evidence base through relevant research projects. Consumers accessing the TRSP service may be invited to participate in TRSP research projects, where appropriate.
Our current projects include:
- Cognitive Remediation Therapy implementation in NSW
- A randomised controlled trial examining treatments for obesity & pre-diabetes
