What to expect when you come to headspace Mount Isa (Click to show below) (Click to hide below)

Find out what it's like at headspace Mount Isa

You will come into our reception/waiting area and be given a few forms to complete.  They should not take too long but if you need help you can ask the person at the front, who will be happy to help! If you've just dropped in and don't have an appointment, any of the workers can meet with you for a short time and then schedule another appointment if that's what you and the worker would like to do.

On your first visit you will be allocated a care coordinator. Sometimes the care coordinator will spend some time with you alone or with you and your family or friends or even other workers that have come with you.

You will also be asked to complete some questions on an iPad about how things are for you. You will be asked these questions everytime you visit our centre so that you can compare how things were and how they are now.

 

What's next?

The care coordinator will tell you about your right to privacy at headspace and look at what is important for you, what you need some help with, and then give you some of their thoughts and talk about options with you. And remember the care coordinators aren't as scary as you think so you can ask them questions too!

 

Where to from here?

  1. You may come back and see the same care coordinator.
  2. You may be given information about other services that will be the best for what you need & the headspace worker may support you to connect with these other services. Sometimes they will be on site and sometimes it means going somewhere else
  3. You may be referred to our GP (or your own GP) to get a Care Plan. This step is really important because it means you can see a health professional (i.e counselor, dietician) for free.

 

When you can't make your appointment

Let someone in our office know! It's important so that someone else who is waiting can take your appointment. Call us on 4437 1300.

 

Did you know?

  • If you miss two appointments, you will need to ring headspace Mount Isa to arrange your next appointment
  • Sometimes people feel that things are going much better and they don't need to attend our service anymore. That's great! Just let your care coordinator or receptionist know.
  • Sometimes you just want some breathing space, and that's OK too; just let us know if you want to take a break!
  • You are still welcome to come back anytime you need our support again.
