Mental health directories

CESPHN’s Mental Health Services Directory aims to:  

  • assist referrers, and service providers to understand what services are available in the region  
  • best match services to the needs of patients/clients and with the aim of provide up-to-date wait time information for all services listed. 

The directory has been thoughtfully designed to allow referrers to drill down and find services specific to their patients’ needs, preferences and circumstances. This can be done using the comprehensive filtering system for demographics, service type, population type, plus location services and wait time feature.  

For clinical mental health services listed in the directory, referrers can also filter by IAR (Initial Assessment and Referral) Level of Care (1-5). The IAR Decision Support Tool (DST) for mental healthcare was developed by the Department of Health and Aged Care to guide referral to the most appropriate treatment intensity for an individual, getting them the right care at the right time.
