 What we do

We assist consumers who live in the following Local Government Areas (LGAs):

  • Manly
  • Warringah
  • Pittwater.

Brookvale Community Health Centre provides specialised mental health care for adults aged over 18 years of age or older  who have a mental health condition and people who are significantly affected by mental health problems

 

Services offered include:

  • short term interventions to assist consumers to cope with the crisis or exacerbation of their illness,
  • supporting those consumers requiring follow-up on discharge from hospital,
  • longer term care co-ordination for adults seriously affected by a mental illness (including chizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, major depression, acute psychosis and anxiety disorders).

 

The service adopts the  following principles of best practice when providing care :

 

  • Person-centred care: Treats the person with dignity and respect, involves them in decisions about their health, supports the person to make informed decisions and to identify their own goals and strategies for care
  • Recovery-oriented: Acknowledges that each individual is an expert on their own life and that recovery is not synonymous with cure, but involves gaining and retaining hope, understanding of one's abilities and disabilities, engagement in an active life, personal autonomy, social identity, meaning and purpose in life, and a positive sense of self
  • Trauma-informed: Recognises the impact of traumatic experiences on a person, with an emphasis on physical, psychological, and emotional safety for everyone, and utilises the person’s strengths to create opportunities for the person to rebuild a sense of control and empowerment
