Mental Health Interventions

Depression, Anxiety, Mood & Psychotic Disorders

Mental health disorders are a leading cause of disability and while mental health problems can affect us all, the degree to which they affect us and the eventual prognosis for recovery can depend on a range of factors including the harnessing of adequate support, personal resilience, and availability of early intervention to prevent consequential harm.

Unfortunately, many people suffering mental health problems are not fully aware of their predicament and skilful intervention is required to bring growing awareness of the issue to light. Often, the responses of the people closest to a person suffering from mental health problems can be unhelpful or at worst, aggravating, with subsequent care required to be taken to assist families and friends to modify their responses to effect better communication and care.

Please note that comprehensive interventions are not suitable where mental health problems are severe or serious enough to warrant immediate specialist mental health care.


Specialist treatment is invariably required where serious mental health concerns are evident, and an intervention can only help to determine the type of help required and where specific help can be accessed. Treatment available for mental health is extremely broad and can include private counselling to hospital programs, both public and private. Where mental health problems are severe, involuntary admissions might have to be organised.
