0 - No contact took place

Only use this code where the service contact is recorded as a no show.

1 - Assessment

Determination of a person’s mental health status and need for mental health services, made by a suitably trained mental health professional, based on the collection and evaluation of data obtained through interview and observation, of a person’s history and presenting problem(s). Assessment may include consultation with the person’s family and concludes with formation of problems/issues, documentation of a preliminary diagnosis, and a treatment plan.

2 - Structured psychological intervention

Those interventions which include a structured interaction between a client and a service provider using a recognised, psychological method, for example, cognitive behavioural techniques, family therapy or psycho education counselling. These are recognised, structured or published techniques for the treatment of mental ill-health. Structured psychological interventions are designed to alleviate psychological distress or emotional disturbance, change maladaptive behaviour and foster mental health. Structured psychological therapies can be delivered on either an individual or group basis, typically in an office or community setting. They may be delivered by trained mental health professionals or other individuals with appropriate competencies but who do not meet the requirements for registration, credentialing or recognition as a mental health professional. Structured Psychological Therapies include but are not limited to:

  • Psycho-education (including motivational interviewing)
  • Cognitive-behavioural therapies
  • Relaxation strategies
  • Skills training
  • Interpersonal therapy
3 - Other psychological intervention

Psychological interventions that do meet criteria for structured psychological intervention.

4 - Clinical care coordination/liaison

Activities focused on working in partnership and liaison with other health care and service providers and other individuals to coordinate and integrate service delivery to the client with the aim of improving their clinical outcomes. Consultation and liaison may occur with primary health care providers, acute health, emergency services, rehabilitation and support services, family, friends, other support people and carers and other agencies that have some level of responsibility for the client’s treatment and/or well being.

5 - Clinical nursing services

Services delivered by mental health nurses that cannot be described elsewhere. Typically, these aim to provide clinical support to clients to effectively manage their symptoms and avoid unnecessary hospitalisation. Clinical nursing services include:

  • monitoring a client’s mental state;
  • liaising closely with family and carers as appropriate;
  • administering and monitoring compliance with medication;
  • providing information on physical health care, as required and, where appropriate, assist in addressing the physical health inequities of people with mental illness; and
  • improving links to other health professionals/clinical service providers.
6 - Child or youth-specific assistance NEC

Services delivered to, or on behalf, of a child or young person that cannot be described elsewhere. These can include, for example, working with a child’s teacher to provide advice on assisting the child in their educational environment; working with a young person’s employer to assist the young person to their work environment.

Note: This code should only be used for Service Contacts that cannot be described by any other Service Type. It is expected that the majority of Service Contacts delivered to children and young people can be assigned to other categories.

7 - Suicide prevention specific assistance NEC

Services delivered to, or on behalf, of a client who presents with risk of suicide that cannot be described elsewhere. These can include, for example, working with the person’s employers to advise on changes in the workplace; working with a young person’s teacher to assist the child in their school environment; or working with relevant community-based groups to assist the client to participate in their activities.

Note: This code should only be used for Service Contacts that cannot be described by any other Service Type. It is expected that the majority of Service Contacts delivered to client’s who have a risk of suicide can be assigned to other categories.

8 - Cultural specific assistance NEC

Culturally appropriate services delivered to, or on behalf, of an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander client that cannot be described elsewhere. These can include, for example, working with the client’s community support network including family and carers, men’s and women’s groups, traditional healers, interpreters and social and emotional wellbeing counsellors.

Note: This code should only be used for Service Contacts that cannot be described by any other Service Type. It is expected that the majority of Service Contacts (see domains below) delivered to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander clients can be assigned to other categories.

9 - Psychosocial support

Service providers are required to report on Service Contact Type for every contact with a client. This requires a judgement about the main service delivered at each contact, selected from a small list of options, and based on the activity that accounted for most provider time. Service Contact Type complements Principal Focus of Treatment Plan by capturing information to understand the mix of services provided within an individual episode of care.

Service Contact Type should be coded as Psychosocial Support (code 9) where the main services delivered during the contact involved the delivery of psychosocial support services. Psychosocial support services are defined for PMHC MDS purposes as services that focus on building capacity and stability in one or more of the following areas:

  • social skills and friendships, family connections;
  • managing daily living needs;
  • financial management and budgeting;
  • finding and maintaining a home;
  • vocational skills and goals, including volunteering;
  • educational and training goals;
  • maintaining physical wellbeing, including exercise;
  • building broader life skills including confidence and resilience.

These services are usually delivered by a range of non-clinical providers including peer support workers with lived experience of mental illness.

Service Contacts recorded as psychosocial support may be delivered in all episodes of care, regardless of episode type. However, it is expected that they will be mainly associated with episodes where the Principal Focus of Treatment Plan is classified as Psychosocial Support.

98 - ATAPS

Services delivered as part of ATAPS funded referrals that are recorded and/or migrated into the PMHC MDS.

Note: This code should only be used for Service Contacts that are migrated from ATAPS MDS sources that cannot be described by any other Service Type. It is expected that the majority of Service Contacts delivered to clients from 1st July, 2017 can be assigned to other categories.

This response will not be allowed on service contacts delivered after 30 June 2018. (All ATAPS referrals should have concluded by that date).

This response will only be allowed on service contacts with the !ATAPS flag.
