Bendigo Health Mental Health Services operate under a philosophy of care to deliver evidence based treatment and patient centred care, underpinned by recovery orientated principles and values. Our Mental Health service is a growing regional centre big enough to offer opportunities to build skills and access career pathways but small enough to allow for social connection and a sense of belonging to the community.
We deliver treatment and care in the most appropriate and least restrictive setting that is sensitive to gender and culture, informed by an understanding of responses to trauma, and responsive to the contexts of patients’ lives and communities. Our multidisciplinary workforce is constantly evolving and our recovery models are now integrating a lived experience workforce to enhance our patient care.
