State-wide, community-based mental health

Mindset Tasmania is a suite of state-wide, community-based mental health psychosocial programs that have evolved from Baptcare’s MiCare (now Foundations) program, which began in 2013. The Foundations program was designed and implemented in response to a service gap identified by Tasmanian Mental Health Services – a gap that left some of the state’s most vulnerable people without adequate support. Mindset has now grown to include the Foundations, Choices and Horizons programs, each tailored to meet a specific need in the community.

Mental Health programs
Having strong, independently evaluated (by Monash University) and evidence-informed mental health programs is essential to ensure that service provision is consistently high quality, accessible and meets the needs of Tasmanians in the best possible way. Mindset has also developed a strong peer worker-based workforce. This is an important feature of the Mindset model, as it ensures programs can provide holistic and integrated support to our client group(s).

The suite of services offered by Mindset include:

Foundations – working with adults with severe mental health issues in partnership with Mental Health Services;

Choices – supporting people exiting the Department of Psychiatry, including transitional accommodation when necessary;

Horizons – providing group and short-term individual interventions for people with severe and episodic mental health issues.

I would like to thank Mental Health Services and Primary Health Tasmania for their support in the implementation of our programs.

Baptcare and Monash University logos

To build the evidence base of Mindset Foundations and Choices programs, Baptcare partnered with the Monash Centre for Health Research and Implementation, Monash University. Since 2018, a team of researchers from Monash University’s School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine have developed a strong and collaborative relationship with the Foundations and Choices teams.
