Occupational Therapy helps people to participate in their activities of daily life. Occupational Therapy in mental health care looks at how an individual’s mental illness/emotional wellbeing impacts on their ability to carry out these everyday activities. Joanne will attempt to address any support needs via individual and/or group programs that aim to increase independence.
A variety of occupational therapy and related assessments can be used to assist with treatment planning.
Joanne works primarily with clients aged 17 – 65 years.
Joanne offers an opportunity for practitioners in mental health to engage in guided reflection on current practice and receive support from a practitioner with experience in mental health care.
