Sub-acute residential recovery care
Prevention and Recovery Care (PARC) - CAIRNS
With sub-acute, short stay step-up and step-down care (delivered through partnerships with hospital networks) residents can access specialist clinical mental health staff 24 hours a day, while also being supported to enhance connections with family and friends, and their capacity for living in the community. PARCs provide a schedule of group activities alongside individual 1:1 support based on your strengths and goals as identified in your individual recovery plan. Cairns PARC is an adult service (25 - 64yrs).
Who for:People who need short term intensive recovery support to help them transition out of an acute mental health facility or to help them avoid hospitalisation.
How to access:Access is generally through the clinical provider and facilitated through psychiatric assessment. This may be via Crisis Assessment and Treatment Team (CATT), Continuing Care Team (CCT) or similar. Eligibility is contingent on Area Mental Health Service case management (although some variability applies to different PARCs).
Outcome statement:Stabilised mental health and the skills to live safely in the community.
