The primary focus of Brisbane MIND services within a stepped care approach to mental health services is people with mild to moderate mental illness who are not clinically suited to low intensity mental health services and who are underserviced through other arrangements, particularly Better Access services. When an individual is diagnosed with a severe mental illness, Brisbane MIND is only suitable if they are also assessed as likely to benefit from short-term intervention.
Following a comprehensive needs analysis, Brisbane North PHN has identified the following priority groups:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
- people who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness
- people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
- people at risk of suicide
- people who have experienced trauma and abuse.
- people who have had contact with the criminal justice system
- people who reside in the Morton Bay North region
- lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex people (LGBTI)

All forms to be used for Brisbane MIND can be accessed below. Please note when you access these word documents they will appear at the bottom of your screen as a downloaded document.
- Referral for Additional Sessions
Providers are able to request approval for additional sessions through Redicase when a client reaches six sessions (general program) or eight sessions (suicide prevention program). This request will come to the Brisbane MIND team for approval and replaces the need for Form 1 and for the GP to provide a referral for further sessions.
When a client has completed 12 sessions (general program) or 16 sessions (suicide prevention program), the provider can request further sessions by completing FORM 1 - Brisbane MIND/MIND4KiDS AHP Request for Additional Sessions. Before further sessions will be approved by the Brisbane MIND team, the K10+ score (for adults) and SDQ tool (for children) is required to be completed via Redicase. A progress report is to be completed and sent to the client's GP to keep them informed.
