Which location should I call?
Call the service closest to you. These clinics are spread across Perth. They each have a catchment area and see people in the neighbouring suburbs. The person answering the phone will usually
Who can call these services?
Anyone. If you are concerned about your mental health, call your local service to get advice and suggestions. If you feel a friend or family member needs help, you can call on their behalf or bring it to the service’s attention. GP, Perth psychiatrists, psychologists, NDIS service providers, concerned employers and neighbours, can and have all called triage. It’s a service that is available to the local community.
Who will I speak to initially?
During business hours your call will likely be answered by a receptionist. The person answering the phone is unlikely to be a mental health clinician. However, they are likely to be someone who knows their service and can direct you to the right person.
What happens if I call at night (after hours)?
If it is an emergency, that requires an urgent response it is best to call ‘000’. If you call late at night, you will likely hear a recorded message that will include an after-hours triage number. In most cases, your call will be forwarded to the after-hours service.
How long before I get seen by a Perth psychiatrist or psychologist?
It’s unlikely that you be seen or speak with a local Perth psychiatrist when you call. Generally, calls are taken by someone working at the triage office in these clinics. In some instances when an urgent assessment is needed, a local Perth based psychiatrist might be involved in an in-person review soon after the first call.
What happens during the first call with triage?
Each of these services is slightly different. Generally, when calling triage you will speak to either a mental health nurse or social worker. They will want to know your details, for example, your name, address and phone number. They will want you to share your story and concerns, after which they will ask clarifying questions. Some callers can find this difficult. However, it helps if the mental health clinician has a thorough understanding. You can certainly let them know if you find their questions intrusive or upsetting.
What happens after the first call?
Towards the end of your initial call with triage, generally, the person you are speaking with will try to make a plan. They may suggest you speak to your GP, come into hospital or agree to call you back with more information. In some instance, they may arrange an assessment with a local Perth psychiatrist for you.
