This cross-disciplinary elective unit expands on the student’s knowledge of mental health care to focus on community mental health care. The unit aims to provide students with a theoretical framework to support the development of clinical skills and expertise relevant to practice in a range of community-based programs. The focus of the unit is on examining critically current models for community-based mental health care, models for case management, and the role of the clinician within the multidisciplinary community mental health team. The unit critically explores a broad range of issues impacting on the provision of mental health care in the community, including the legal and ethical issues dimensions of community-based care, and current mental health policy and frameworks for care. The unit is underpinned by a recovery-focused consumer-centred and family-sensitive approach to care, and critically explores current models for psychosocial rehabilitation and care planning.
