This service is for people over 65 years with existing complex mental illness, those who develop a mental illness later in life and those who have severe behavioural problems associated with dementia.

Services include assessment and intervention, case management, outreach and secondary consultation.

Those who require additional services to avoid a potential hospital admission may, after discussion with the client and family, be offered an Intensive Community Treatment Program.
