  • Have a serious mental illness and functional disability.

What to expect

Intensive Home Based Support Services (IHBSS)

IHBSS (Intensive Home Based Support Services) provides psychosocial support for people who either have experienced acute episodes of mental illness requiring hospitalisation or who are at risk of being admitted to hospital.

Program participants are provided with up to three months of intensive support aimed at preventing admission or relapse, facilitating early discharge, and transitioning back into the community after leaving hospital.

The type of support provided is dependent on individual needs and goals. Examples of things we can help with include:

  • Taking part in social and community activities, and connecting with local services.
  • Improving relationships with family and friends.
  • Improving physical health and wellbeing.
  • Building confidence with everyday tasks such as budgeting, public transport and home care.
  • Pursuing education and employment opportunities.

Clinical Care Coordination

Clinical Care Coordinators work with you and your GP to plan and access the right support for your wellbeing.

Together, we find the right level of care at the right time to help you get better and work towards recovery.

Clinical Care Coordination is a free service.

Over three months, a Clinical Care Coordinator supports you to:

  • determine your needs
  • develop a coordinated care plan
  • monitor your general health needs
  • work with services that provide long-term support
  • access one-to-one counselling sessions.

An organised approach towards recovery

We coordinate with the people involved in your care to get you the right service and can include:

  • clinicians
  • health care providers
  • Carers
  • family members
  • other significant persons.

After connecting with the right services, the Clinical Care Coordinator will follow up with you and your service providers to ensure the services are effective.
