Mental Health Assessment Tool and Training – Video explainer developed

The PHN has developed a short video to highlight the benefits of the Initial Assessment and Referral (IAR) tool. The IAR tool is a holistic, decision-making framework that uses the stepped care approach to assist general practitioners and clinicians in matching consumers with the most appropriate mental health services for their needs.

The PHN provides a 2 hour group training workshop to help primary health clinicians understand how to use the IAR-DST, either in-person or online. The training is designed to provide you with all the information you need to use the tool in your everyday practice. Even if you don’t use it every day, the training will provide you with options to collaborate with others to use the tool in a way that suits your practice.
