Mental Health Nursing Assessment Support
We provide physical and mental health assessment, treatment, counselling and assistance to improve daily living where it is impacted by your disability.
Clear Thinking supports provision of specialist assessment where the participant may have complex or unclear needs or requires long term and/or intensive supports to address behaviours of concern.
Some people with a disability exhibit behaviour that can be of concern; this can include those who cause harm to themelves or others. This behaviour may cause physical or emotional hardship, or limit the person’s ability to fully engage with their community. We work to determine the reason for a behaviour of concern, providing targeted strategies to support each individual in decreasing their reliance on that behaviour to meet their needs. We then work to develop strategies that build on a person’s strengths and to develop positive relationships, communication and coping skills.
