Mental health for service providers
According to the World Health Organisation mental health is a state of wellbeing in which a person is able to:
- cope with the normal stresses of life
- work productively
- realise their potential
- contribute to the community
A stepped care approach to mental health promotes person centred care which targets the needs of the individual. It recognises that the individual needs change and allows for flexibility for people to move across services levels to support their recovery.
An individual does not generally have to start at the lowest, least intensive level of intervention in order to progress to the next ‘step’. Rather, they enter the system and have their service level aligned to their needs.
We hope that the steps below will be helpful to support you to find the right service or supports for the people you see. Please give us feedback via the About Us tab on the homepage of this website.
