What is a Mental Health Treatment?

Updated: Jan 13, 2021

Treatment for mental disorders is individualised for each patient. This is organised after a comprehensive holistic assessment and arranged collaboratively between the person and the treating professional/s.

There is a range of therapies available and these are tailored to each individual's needs. Mental health professionals follow a biopsychosocial model of care. This involves addressing the biological, psychological and social components of the mental illness. Clinicians follow evidence-based best practice which means that they implement treatments which have been shown to be evidently effective.

Treatments can include medications. There are also various psychotherapies (talking therapies) that have an evidence base for specific disorders. A combination of medication, psychotherapy and social interventions are usually the most effective for more severe mental disorders. Patients are also encouraged to utilise self-help strategies such as accessing recommended and credible online resources and support groups.
