SEMPHN is seeking organisations to deliver an Accessible Psychological Interventions (API) service in one or more Local Government Areas (LGAs) within our catchment:
- Greater Dandenong
- Mornington Peninsula
- Port Philip
- Glen Eira.
Accessible Psychological Interventions (API) are flexible services for consumers with a mental illness who will benefit from individual, family and/or group psychological services from allied health professionals.
The range of interventions is in line with those available under the Commonwealth Better Access to Mental Health Care program. API will be available for population groups that are harder to reach or underserviced, and cannot currently afford/access private psychological services.
API will replace Access To Allied Psychological Services (ATAPS) later this year.
API are part of our Mental Health Stepped Care Model and are in line with Australia-wide changes in mental health services.
