Therapeutic Pillars represent specific therapies and interventions and guide targeted areas of evidence-informed health provision offered at MSAMHS.
Development of the Therapeutic Pillars has been informed by international and Australian guidelines, from discussions and completion of surveys with mental health practitioners, administration and peer lived experience team members, and from consultation with consumers and carers of our service.
The function of the Pillars is to:
- Highlight endorsed areas of practice that promote recovery and organisational responsibility to invest in staff knowledge and practice
- Improve consumer and carer access to evidence-informed practice and recovery-oriented services
- Promote appropriate formulation of consumer needs to positively influence the direction of care based on evidence and consumer desires in line with the organisation’s values
- Ensure each consumer is seen contextually as a person, not just through the perspective of illness or symptomatology
- Reduce variable access to care making interventions, supports and therapies equally accessible to all consumers and carers: No wrong door policy.
