Central West Mental Health Service

 

Description

The Central West Mental Health Service is a government organisation which provides confidential assessment, treatment, and management for people with a mental health problem. Priority is given to those with a major mental illness or those at risk due to their mental state. Psychiatric crisis and ongoing case management are provided. Liaison and consultation with other services and agencies is also offered. Specific programs have been established to service children, adolescents, adults, and older adults.

The organisation is staffed by mental health nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, psychologists, consultant psychiatrists, youth counsellors, and Indigenous mental health workers. Adults can be referred to the service by general practitioner, self-referral, or other agencies. Referral to the child and adolescent service is through general practitioner, self, parent, or guardian, specialist medical services (pediatrician), school psychologist, or child/community health nurses.

The service covers the Midwest, Gascoyne, and Murchison regions. The area serviced extends from Onslow in the north to Greenhead in the south and inland to Wiluna. Offices are located in Geraldton, Carnarvon, Meekatharra, and Exmouth.
