In particular, MHSS works with consumers who have severe forms of mental illness and behavioural disturbance, including those who are subject to the provisions of the Mental Health Act 2000.

During 2014-15, there were 7,431 new referrals received, which is an increase of nearly 9 per cent from the previous financial year.

Multidisciplinary teams deliver assessments, clinical interventions and rehabilitation services to people of all ages experiencing mental health problems across the West Moreton region.

Clinical and service sites include Ipswich Health Plaza, Goodna Community Centre, Ipswich Hospital, The Park – Centre for Mental Health, Treatment, Research and Education, rural outreach posts and a range of correctional facilities.

A new Community Care Unit at Gailes will also open in early 2016. It will provide medium-term care to adult mental health consumers who are in recovery but require additional support and life skills development to successfully transition to independent community living.

As part of the division’s leadership across the State in mental health excellence, MHSS operates the state-wide forensic, high security inpatient service, as well as the Extended Forensic Treatment and Rehabilitation Unit.

Mental health services are provided to consumers in the Brisbane, Brisbane Women’s, Wolston, Maryborough, Woodford, Southern Queensland and Arthur Gorrie correctional centres.
