MH Integrated Complex Care (MHICC)

Mental Health Integrated Complex Care

Mental Health Integrated Complex Care (MHICC) services offer support for people with severe mental illness and complex needs.

This includes long-term assistance with your physical health care, managing your medication and support for you and your loved ones. 

Once you have been offered a MHICC service, you will have the opportunity to access one or more of the following professionals: clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health nurses, social workers and occupational therapists.

You can also be allocated a care coordinator who will assist you to manage your health needs.

MHICC services are part of the Mental Health Stepped Care model which means you can ‘step down’ into less intensive services, if your mental health needs change.
