Mental health services

SA Health has a comprehensive range of public mental health services for children and adolescents, adults and older people in SA. Services are provided through community health centres and hospitals, and to consumers in their own homes.

Your general practitioner is able to help and can make referrals to specialist mental health services. There are also a broad network of non-government organisations that provide many important mental health services with assistance from the South Australian government.

Mental Health Triage Service - 13 14 65

The SA Health Mental Health Triage Service operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

This service:

Community Clinical Rehabilitation Service

The Community Clinical Rehabilitation Service (CCRS) has a focus of proactive and timely one-to-one rehabilitation with mental health consumers who have an open episode with either the Eastern or Western Community Mental Health Teams (CMHT). CCRS also has a strong focus on community partnerships and offers a range of evidence and needs-based therapeutic group programs.

A referral can be completed at any point in a consumer’s care continuum; access is not dependent on current phase of illness or symptoms. If a consumer is eligible for services from the CMHT they are eligible for CCRS to work in parallel where rehabilitation needs exist.

Clinical rehabilitation is planned and undertaken in conjunction with the consumer and their other care and treatment services. It is provided via home visits, at community venues and CMHT locations. Every consumer at CCRS is supported to develop a strength-based individual rehabilitation plan which includes their rehabilitation targeted goals, agreed actions and timeframes.

CCRS has a multidisciplinary team which comprises peer specialists, psychologists, occupational therapists, a social worker and co-morbidity specialists.

For further information contact CCRS on (08) 8200 2000
