Ensuring Continuity of Care for Clients with Severe and Enduring Conditions
Mental Health Shared Care (MHSC) is a clinical therapy service which is funded by SA Health. Individuals whom present with Tier Three diagnoses (including but not limited to - schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, severe anxiety and depression) whom are suitable to be managed in a primary care setting, are eligible for this service.
Going forward, SA Health will contract Adelaide PHN to commission the program. This program will be operational as of the 1st of October 2018. As with all other commissioned programs, the referral pathway for the Shared Care program will be through the Adelaide PHN Centralised Referral Unit (CRU) 1300 580 249.
In the interim period July to September 2018, the existing providers (GP Partners and Sonder) will not be accepting any new referrals for the Shared Care program. As such, any new referrals should be faxed to the CRU into the suite of other Adelaide PHN commissioned services.
If you have any questions about this service, please contact Kelly Stewart, Capacity Building and Development Co-ordinator: KStewart@adelaidephn.com.au
