Stepped Care model of Mental Health

The Stepped Care model of Mental Health focuses on linking you in with the right level of support that you need. The approach takes into account the bigger picture of your health looking at the whole person, including your physical, social and mental needs.

One of the main features of the model is that it is flexible – we know that the level of support you need will change over time, and if that happens, we change with you. A good way to think about this is ‘stepping up’ or ‘stepping down’ as your needs change. We stay with you along this journey. Emphasis is placed on the client only telling their story once, to make engaging with our mental health service a seamless and supportive experience. This means you can get what you need, without having to change care providers every time you step up or step down.
