Description

Family Mental Health Service in Mosgiel is a free community mental health service for individuals of all ages and families experiencing mental health difficulties.

Staff with assistance from the service user complete a comprehensive mental health assessment and develop an individualised treatment plan for those persons suspected to be suffering from moderate to severe mental health issues. Staff use recognised psychotherapeutic interventions and work with people for up to a 6-8 month period alongside their GPs and other health professionals.

The service provides strengths based mental health treatment and therapy service for infants, children, adolescents, youth and their families in a community setting.

The service works in partnership with a number of other organisations and schools including providing advice and information around the care of individuals with mental health issues.
