The prospective primary goal of treatment within an episode of care in terms of the recognised phases of mental health care. Whilst it is recognised that there may be aspects of each mental health phase of care represented in the consumer’s mental health plan, the mental health phase of care is intended to identify the main goal or aim that will underpin the next period of care.
The mental health phase of care is independent of both the treatment setting and the designation of the treating service, and does not reflect service unit type.
The five mental health phases of care are:
2 Functional gain
3 Intensive extended
4 Consolidating gain
5 Assessment only.
