Mental Health

Providing ongoing care and support for someone who is living with a mental illness can involve many different support organisations. These may include psychologists, GPs, psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses or other community care providers. They are all part of the healthcare team, which works together to provide you with the best level of care possible.

At Eastbrooke Medical Centres we have a highly professional team who can can assist people with mental health disorders and illnesses.

Mental Health Care at Eastbrooke Health Centres aims to provide you with a health care plan to ensure you can live your life normally. A care plan explains the support provided by each of those professionals and when treatment should be provided. Your care plan might also include what to do in a crisis or to prevent relapse. Having a care plan will help you become more involved in your healthcare. A care plan can:

  • Help you to set and achieve goals
  • Make sure everyone involved in your mental healthcare team is working towards the same goals
  • Help you and your doctor manage your long-term care in a way that is clear and easy to understand
  • Give you a way to monitor your progress and check that you continue to receive the care you need
  • Lead to better treatment by focusing on improving and maintaining your health rather than just dealing with problems as they arise
  • Provide life-saving information in emergencies.

If you would like more information or would like to make a booking for a mental health test, please contact your preferred Eastbrooke Medical Centre within NSW or VIC.
