Discharge

The treating doctor and the clinical team will provide a discharge plan for each patient.  Planning for discharge commences on admissions in conjunction with the patient’s specific mental health treatment. This includes arrangements for ongoing management, follow up and education.  Wherever possible, family and careers are encouraged to be involved in this process.
