Tasmania’s mental health system
The Department of Health (Tasmania) Mental Health Services delivers care to Tasmanians with severe 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 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.
