Maroondah Prevention and Recovery Care

The purpose of the Prevention and Recovery Care service is to provide brief (1 – 3 weeks) intensive residential recovery care. The target group is adults requiring more support following an inpatient admission prior to returning home, or those who are at risk of relapse where participation in the program could prevent relapse and hospitalisation from occurring.

The teams will provide individualised treatment to consumers, assisting them with the support required to prevent further deterioration of their illness and assist in their recovery. The units employ a highly collaborative service model, working with other parts of the service system and family and carers including nominated person to support the consumers in meeting their goals.

The Prevention and Recovery Care model of care is an initiative to expand support and treatment options within mental health services. The program (known as Maroondah Prevention and Recovery Care) was funded by the Department of Human Services (DHS) Mental Health Branch in 2008. The service is jointly run by the Eastern Health Adult Mental Health Service (EHAMHS), and Mind (a mental health community support service or MHCSS). The Maroondah program is a 10 bed residential facility with 24-hour staffing based at 2 Bona Street, Ringwood East. It does not offer community program day placements.

Maroondah Prevention and Recovery Care provides services to the municipalities of Whitehorse (East of Springvale Road), Maroondah, Yarra Ranges and Knox.
