Model of Care and Service Overview
Clarity Health Care (CHC) is a mental health service delivering a multidisciplinary, responsive program offering care to people with any form of mental health concern or mental illness. Our team comprises of psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers and registered nurses. Clarity utilise several modalities to offer consumers and carers choice in the treatment they receive. This includes outreach services, clinic based appointments, telehealth and group programs. Due to the design of the workforce at Clarity, collaboration and continuity of care is core to the delivery of the treatment with the recovery model and bio-psycho-social model as overarching principles. Your mental health care will be in collaboration with your GP or other health care practitioners in addition to any carers and family members you would like to involve.
Clarity provide treatment for any mental health concern and will suggest an appropriate treating team after speaking with the consumer over the phone. This decision will be made in full collaboration with you and your loved ones; taking into account your previous history, preferences and current presenting concerns. It is very rare that Clarity would not have a suitable mental health clinician for a consumer’s concern.
