Request for Proposal

Psychological Treatment for People with Mental Illness
in Residential Aged Care

Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) is seeking responses for this Request for Proposal (RFP), providing Psychological Treatment for People with Mental Illness in Residential Aged Care within the Gold Coast region. 
This RFP supports the model collaboratively co-designed by Brisbane South Primary Health Network, Aged and Community Services Australia and GCPHN, to address the significant gap in service delivery for older people living in Residential Aged Care (RAC), experiencing symptoms of mental health disorders or illness.

The following service components that form the basis of this RFP are priority areas that were identified through the recent GCPHN 2018 Needs Assessment and GCPHN co-design service. The purpose of the co-design process was to collaboratively design the service delivery model through engaging consumers, service users and other key stakeholders in the design process. The model used feedback, advice and decisions from people with lived experience, work experience and experts in the field, to meet the needs of older people, living in RAC experiencing symptoms of mental health disorders or illness.


Service Components: 

  1. Service information, referral pathways, triage and intake for access to psychological services for residents of Residential Aged Care.
  2. Provision of psychological services for residents in Residential Aged Care including evidence based individual and group therapy sessions.
  3. Strengthen multidisciplinary care within Residential Aged Care working closely with the resident’s General Practitioners (GPs) and facility staff resulting in improved capability within RAC facilities to support resident’s mental health requirements.

Submissions must be made no later than 5.00pm, Monday 29 July 2019. Respondents will be notified of the outcome of their response, in writing via email, upon a decision being made by GCPHN.
