Aged Psychiatry Assessment & Treatment Teams

What we do

Our Aged Psychiatry Assessment and Treatment Teams provide assessment, treatment, rehabilitation and case management, to older people, helping to prevent unnecessary hospitalisation and minimise the length of stay in acute inpatient facilities.

We work with the older person and their family to assess the severity of their mental illness and recommend an appropriate form of treatment and/or support. In all cases, there is a shared care arrangement with a general practitioner. We see people at our offices or have the ability to also see people in their own homes when required.

Our teams service the entire North Western and South Western regions of metropolitan Melbourne and operate within geographical boundaries:

  • Mid West and South West APATT - cities of Brimbank and Melton (including Sunbury), Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong and Wyndham
