Baptcare MIcare Mental Health Program

Baptcare MIcare Mental Health Program

MIcare (pronounced my care) is a state-wide recovery-based program run by Baptcare, in partnership with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), which offers individualised packages of care to people with severe and sustained mental illness. MIcare provides an outreach support service which is person-centred, strengths-focused, time-limited, and seeks to improve the individual’s overall wellbeing.

Services Include:
  • referrals from mental health clinicians whose clients are registered with DHHS Mental Health Services
  • referrals from mental health clinicians whose clients are aged 18–64
  • referrals from mental health clinicians whose clients have a severe and persistent mental illness, and who, due to the effects of their illness, have difficulty functioning; frequent presentations to mental health; or frequent inpatient admissions
  • referrals from mental health clinicians whose clients have been assessed as needing intensive support to obtain and maintain accommodation; foster independent living skills; social functioning; and to improve their overall social and emotional wellbeing
  • referrals from mental health clinicians whose clients have been assessed as NOT requiring 24-hour support and assistance
  • referrals from mental health clinicians whose clients indicate a willingness to engage in this community-based program for a period of up to 6–12 months.

MIcare accepts referrals from mental health case managers within DHHS only. If you think that someone would meet the MIcare criteria and would benefit from intensive support, speak with their mental health case manager about making a referral.

To make a referral, contact the client’s mental health case manager within DHHS.
