Albury Wodonga Health’s Mental Health Service provides specialist clinical assessment, treatment and on-going care to people who have, or who are at risk of a serious mental illness or suicide. Across a range of disciplines they support people of all ages including people with co-occurring substance use problems. Person centred care is provided through a recovery focused model for both urgent and non-urgent cases.
Albury Wodonga Health (AWH) has 10 specialty community based mental health services, plus three acute care services and three recovery and rehabilitation facilities as well as a service specialising in supporting families, where a parent has a mental illness and connecting people to carer consultants.
The Mental Health team comprises mental health clinicians with a background in nursing, occupational therapy, social work and psychologists, all of whom have experience in helping people through a range of therapies and medical treatment.
Mental health conditions are often characterised by a disturbance of thought, mood, perception and behaviour which causes distress or difficulties. Mild or sever, mental illness can make your everyday routine challenging or seem impossible to deal with. It is a good idea to seek help early if you, or someone you know, is facing mental health challenges.
AWH Mental Health Services covers a wide geographical area, spanning 50,000 square kilometres from Southern New South Wales, to North East Victoria. View map here. Both short-term crisis support and longer term case managed continuing care is available in the region.
