Mental Health Initial Assessment and Referral (IAR) Training Session
The Australian Government, through the Mental Health and Suicide Prevention Plan, is expanding and implementing the Initial Assessment and Referral (IAR) tool in primary care. The IAR Guidance and Decision Support Tool (IAR DST) is a holistic decision-making framework that uses the steppedcare approach to assist general practitioners and clinicians in matching consumers with the most appropriate mental health services for their needs.
The PHN will be providing 2-hour group training workshops to assist GPs and staff to learn how to use the IAR-DST online, therefore enhancing understanding and providing further IAR-related support for our communities.
