BEHAVIOURAL HEALTH PILOT PROGRAM
Behavioural health is the most prevalent patient condition inadequately served by our established medical system — and the impact on the individual goes beyond their psychology, to their broader health, and their life.
We are working with North Brisbane Psychologists and Beddown to pioneer a mental health social worker- and nurse practitioner-lead model of care within a Brisbane shelter, addressing underlying behavioural health factors (including but not limited to mental health) that are often left unaddressed for people experiencing homelessness, but which touch all aspects of our friend’s lives.
This is to launch in the coming weeks, so please check back in then for more information! If you have thoughts or would like to contribute to this initiative please get in touch here.
