Foundations Mental Health Support
Foundations (previously MyCare) is a Tasmanian state-wide, nationally accredited, intensive tailored 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).
The Foundations program is wonderful and they support the clients so well, unlike any other program. When Foundations was in its early stages we thought here is another program, how long will it last and will it deliver. We are so pleased to say the program is great and the clients are so well supported once they leave our facility.
Foundations workers are amazing with the clients and they do all the work supporting clients that we are unable to do. The program and the workers are a credit to Baptcare, and the respect they show for clients. We are all very happy Foundations is available to refer vulnerable clients to.Mental Health Services Case Manager, North Tasmania.
Assisting and encouraging individuals
Identifying services that will ‘wrap around’ them
Foundations assists and encourages individuals to have more control in their life by identifying services that will ‘wrap around’ them to help meet their particular needs – supporting them towards their recovery goals. There is collaboration at all points throughout an individual’s engagement with Foundations. The individual, MHS Case Manager and the Foundations Care Coordinator have regular contact, planning and review of goal progress every 13 weeks. The program promotes the continued wellbeing of the individuals. Part of this is the development of a strong relationship between the Foundations Care Coordinator and the individual.
Acceptance and understanding
Every individual experiences their mental health differently.
Foundations offers a safe place for each individual to be heard and feel valued, and to find purpose and connection within their community. Every individual experiences their mental health differently. The Foundations team work with people experiencing chronic anxiety, schizophrenia, depression, bipolar disorder, issues of hoarding and squalor, borderline personality disorders, as well as additional issues of intellectual disability, or drug and alcohol use. The Foundations team provides understanding and support that accommodates these complexities of mental health, as well as the barriers in people’s lives.
Foundations management understand the complex nature of the work that staff do and demonstrate a commitment to supporting and caring for the wellbeing of workers.Dr Margaret E Hughes
