Tasmania’s mental health system
Statewide Mental Health Services delivers care to Tasmanians with mental health conditions.
We provide services in inpatient settings, like a hospital, and in the community.
We partner with community sector organisations to deliver support services to people with mental illness.
Services can also be provided by private specialists and facilities.
For many people, their doctor (GP) will be their first point of contact.
There are a number of private health providers in Tasmania. These include hospital inpatient settings and outpatient clinics, private psychologists, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals.
