The Lighthouse for Perth is excited to announce our move into our new flagship crisis centre.

 

The Neuk Service Aims

In partnership with Anchor House. Please find the announcement here.

  • Provide multi-agency, co-located support for people who are experiencing mental health crisis.

  • Provide five crisis beds for those who are assessed as in need, for a limited time (up to one week).

  • Service delivery 24 hours a day/7 days a week.

  • Using a shared approach combining the strengths of both the medical and social models.

  • In partnership with other agencies, utilising the same building to provide wrap-around support when people present with complex needs.

  • Managing the crisis based on presentation and enabling people to leave The Neuk with an individualised personal risk plan identifying coping strategies and other community resources.

  • Create planned pathways in partnership with client to address longer-term needs and enable supported self-management
  • Create a therapeutic space in the community where people can feel secure and supported.  Where people can gain person-centred assistance with their immediate mental health needs. Provide opportunity for service users to de-escalate away from the situation that may be linked to their crisis.

  • Help those who are often denied primary/acute mental health care provision due to being marginalised through the behaviours they present, alcohol or drug use, removing barriers to access crisis support.

  • People in crisis are seen and managed through service by appropriately skilled and trained staff.

  • Peer-led support model as an integral part of service delivery.

  • Decrease the need for presentation at A&E, acute mental health services or other emergency services for example, Ambulance and Police.
