Aged Persons Mental Health Service (APMHS)

Welcome to the Aged Persons Mental Health Service.

We provide a range of specialist mental health services for people over the age of 65yrs with a mental illness or those who may experience severe behavioural disturbances associated with Dementia. This is based at the Peter James Centre and we offer services to people who live in the Council areas of Monash, Whitehorse, Manningham, Knox, Maroondah and the Yarra Ranges.

We are a multi-disciplinary service which provides holistic mental health treatment. Our teams are mainly made up of doctors, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists and psychologists. We work collaboratively with clients, GP's and other community service providers within the framework of a shared care model.
