EOI open for General Practices – Stepped mental health care trial (NWMPHN)
North Western Melbourne PHN (NWMPHN) has been selected as one of three sites nationally to work with the University of Melbourne, to test a structured approach to identifying mental health need and triaging patients into appropriate treatment.

Using a brief, purpose-designed online tool, patients are assessed, receive feedback on their responses and a chance to prioritise their areas of concern, and are provided with suggested treatment options matched to their assessment results.

For some patients, their suggested treatment will include working with a Care Navigator (employed by the trial) who is based in the practice and assists GPs with developing care plans and linking patients into relevant local services. Patients will continue to see their GP for all other medical care.

We are currently seeking six practices to work with us on this Australian-first trial. Practices will be awarded a participation grant of $500 per month.

Who can apply?

General practices that can accommodate the following requirements may be eligible:

  • are interested in testing new ways of delivering mental health care
  • see at least 100 patients aged between 18-75 per day
  • can provide a room for patients to attend trial appointments
  • agree to their reception staff asking patients to complete a short questionnaire on an iPad or similar tablet (tablets will be provided by the PHN)

No closing date (Ongoing)
All catchment area submissions welcome

Provision of Stepped Care Mental Health Services – North East (EMPHN)
Eastern Melbourne PHN (EMPHN) is implementing the ‘stepped care’ model for primary mental health care across the catchment and this will be phased over an 18-month time-period. The first phase of the ‘stepped care’ model will be in the areas of City of Whittlesea, Shire of Nillumbik, City of Banyule and parts of the Shires of Mitchel and Murrindindi. The ‘stepped care’ model will be most effective when service providers are integrated and connected. On this basis, EMPHN is seeking to engage with one or more organisations to deliver the Service (the ‘Service Provider/s’) and therefore should not be limited in approach by LGAs as they must be able to effectively straddle equity of access and equitable distribution of resources. EMPHN is seeking a shift in a response for clients along a continuum of acuity. This will, by default, call for a shift in the design of services and how practices and new modalities are delivered.

EMPHN is seeking a Service Provider/s to deliver a whole of service model for stepped care.

The successful Service Provider/s will be contracted from January 2018 until 30 June 2019. This commencement date will take into consideration a ‘service establishment period’, with the Services to ‘go live’ and be delivered from January 2018 through to 30 June 2019 (subject to confirmation of funding from the Commonwealth Department of Health).

Closes 31 October 4:00 pm AEST
