Patients, Family and Carers

Patients, Family and Carers

Mental Health Services welcome consumer, family and carer participation, and the invaluable benefits of working together.

We provide relevant information to patients, families and carers. In this page you can find resources and programs specific to patients, family and carers that may be helpful.

We recognise that every patient, carer and family’s personal journey is different.

If you are a patient, family members or carer currently receiving service from Bendigo Mental Health Services you will be offered our Patient, Family and Carer Survey.  Your comments and suggestions are valued and when timely for you we would appreciate if you could complete our survey. This will be offered around the time of discharge or transfer of care to another unit.

If you require support at any stage or have questions or would like paper copies of other information or the survey please ask staff for assistance.

Mental health self help tool

Independent Mental Health Advocacy have developed a self help tool – a web app for consumers  to develop their own self advocacy plan in relation to their treatment and recovery.

The tool allows consumers  to develop their own plan that they can print and email to themselves. This will  assist consumers to exercise their rights in relation to their mental health treatment and recovery.

The tool is accessible at:
