Primary Mental Health Care

Primary mental health care services funded by the Darling Downs and West Moreton PHN are delivered within a person-centred stepped care approach. 

What is Stepped Care?

Stepped care is an evidence-based approach comprising of a hierarchy of interventions, from the least (low intensity services for people at risk of or experiencing mild mental health conditions) to the most intensive (high intensity services for people with severe and persistent mental health conditions), matched to an individual’s needs. 

Services funded by the PHN

Stepped care enables the PHN to deliver a broader range of service types with the aim to match the intensity and mode of treatment services to the intensity of a person's individual needs.
