Foundations

Nationally accredited, intensive, tailored mental health support

Foundations is a state-wide, psychosocial recovery-based program run by Baptcare in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). It offers tailored packages of care to people with severe and persistent mental health conditions who are case managed through DHHS Mental Health Services (MHS).

Foundations provides an outreach service for people between 18-64 years of age who do not require 24-hour support. Due to the effects of their illness they have:

  • difficulty in daily functioning;
  • frequent presentations to MHS; and/or
  • frequent and/or lengthy inpatient admissions.

Foundations works with individuals to promote recovery and identify barriers that are preventing their progress, recovery or participation in life. Foundations Care Coordinators work one-on-one with individuals for up to 18 months and review
progress against goals every 13 weeks.

The program offers wrap-around‚ intensive support to help individuals to:

  • find and keep accommodation
  • foster independent living skills
  • improve social functioning
  • improve their overall social and emotional well-being
  • connect to the community
  • increase independence
  • remain well and prevent relapse.

The program is person-centred and strengths-focused, with individuals receiving care tailored to their specific needs, goals and situation. Foundations promotes recovery and is provided with flexibility, equity and efficiency – engaging not only the individuals but also their families, carers, their community and MHS.
