Stepped Care and eMental Health – Using online resources to support mental health care

Wed 19th February @ 6:30 pm

Free

In this 2 hour face-to-face workshop participants will be introduced to the concept of stepped care in mental health, specifically in the context of the way mental health problems present and are managed in primary care. The history and thinking behind the development of the stepped care model will be discussed, as well as its advantages of the approach for the patient and the mental health system generally.

Current Black Dog Institute research around the implementation of the model will be discussed. Case examples will be used to demonstrate the development of a case formulation and its use in matching the intensity of treatment to severity of illness.

An overview of the Australian evidence-based online resources available to support work with the mild to moderate end of the severity spectrum of mental illness will be given.
