Forensicare’s Mobile Forensic Mental Health Service turns 5Zoe Simmons
Last week, the Mobile Forensic Mental Health Service celebrated its fifth birthday. Congratulations to the team on this milestone!
On 19 January 2020, the Mobile Forensic Mental Health Service celebrated its fifth birthday.
Created to address the mental health needs of men in prison with complex needs, the multidisciplinary team began accepting referrals five years ago.
While primarily based at the Metropolitan Remand Centre, the team also provides satellite services at Barwon Prison, Marngoneet Correctional Centre, and Karreenga.
The team also provides transitional outreach services to support the transition of consumers out of Mobile FMHS prison locations to provide support and reduce the likelihood of the consumer’s mental deterioration during transition.
“As we celebrate our service’s 5-year anniversary, we would like to thank staff present and past who have helped shape the service” Principal Psychologist and Mobile FMHS Manager Dr Ming-Yun Hsieh said.
“Thank you to our staff who are continuing to contribute towards the mental health recovery of some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged men in Victoria’s public health system.”
Happy anniversary, Mobile Forensic Mental Health Service! Thank you for helping us to make a difference.
