Latrobe Regional Hospital

Adult Mental Health Service

People aged between 18-65 years have access to a range of programs to assist with their mental health recovery.

Your journey will start by contacting our Mental Health Triage Service on 1300 363 322.

Our senior clinical staff will assess how specialist services can help you or someone you know.

  • Flynn Unit: The Flynn Unit at Latrobe Regional Hospital provides intensive treatment. Flynn delivers a range of therapeutic interventions ranging from medically-based pharmaceutical interventions to social, psychological and recreational therapies with the aim of managing the illness and preventing relapse. The needs of the person are met by a team including nursing, medical and allied health professionals.
  • Secure Extended Care Unit: People with a severe and prolonged mental illness may require specialised care in the Secure Extended Care Unit (SECU) at Latrobe Regional Hospital. It aims to provide a safe and caring environment for patients who have behavioural disturbances that pose a risk to themselves and others and who can’t be managed effectively by alternative services.
  • Community Residential Care Unit: The Community Residential Care Unit (CRCU) aims to assist you to develop your skills towards maximum independence by providing a pathway for you to live in the wider community. The CRCU features 14 independent residential units that have 24-hour support from qualified staff. It is located in Traralgon within easy walking distance of the local shopping centre, railway station and bus routes.
  • Prevention and Recovery Care: For some people, mental health treatment and recovery may be better suited in a supported residential setting. The Prevention and Recovery Care Service (PARCS) is a 10-bed residential facility in Bairnsdale run as a partnership between SNAP Gippsland and Latrobe Regional Hospital Mental Health Services.
  • Continuing Care: People are referred to the Continuing Care service after assessments by triage and an intake team. Continuing Care aims to help people manage their recovery in a community setting in partnership with other health providers, non-government mental health services and community and business organisations.

Our tax time appeal for mums-to-be

Help us bring the next generation of Gippslanders into the world safely. Support our appeal to purchase a new ultrasound machine.

The latest ultrasound equipment will provide our obstetricians and midwives with superior imaging quality of an unborn baby to monitor their growth and health. If we can pick up on changes in a baby's development, we may be in a better position to prevent complications during birth.
