Mental Health - Inpatient and Extended Treatment Services

Adult Mental Health Services brochure

Statewide Mental Health Services assist adults aged up to 65 years of age who have a serious mental illness or disorder and need 24 hour care in inpatient and extended treatment facilities.

Specialist services range from medical, nursing and allied health assessment and treatment in acute inpatient units to a long-term support and treatment focus in community-based facilities.

Bridging inpatient and community care, the RHH Mental Health Hospital in the Home Unit commenced in March 2019. The Unit provides people who are experiencing acute mental illness with short-term care, treatment and support in their own home.

Inpatient Services managed by Mental Health Services:

  • Mental Health Inpatient Unit, Royal Hobart Hospital, Hobart (statewide admissions)
  • Spencer Clinic, North West Regional Hospital, Burnie
  • Northside Clinic, Launceston General Hospital, Launceston
  • Tyenna Blue, Millbrook Rise Centre, New Norfolk (statewide admissions)

The Safewards program is used in our specialist inpatient facilities. Safewards encourages staff and consumers to work together to make the inpatient unit safer for everyone. Safer means a calmer and more positive place.
