CNAP Integrated Services
The LLW Complex Needs Assessment Panel Integrated Services (CNAPIS) brings government and community representatives in partnership to provide a coordinated approach when assessing and planning the needs of clients with complex needs, especially with regards to the complexities inherent in dual diagnosis (AOD abuse and Mental Illness).
The CNAPIS function is to work together to assess, plan, implement and review service support/s for clients aged 17 – 29 who present with complex needs related to dual diagnosis (mental health and AODs issues) alongside their families/significant others. CNAPIS also functions to advocate for its clients within LLW services, networks and sectors to ensure the effectiveness of collaborative partnerships.
- To improve the quality and availability of support to people with complex needs related to dual diagnosis (AOD abuse and mental illness)
- To provide a coordinated approach to addressing client goals and barriers.
- To improve service delivery, assisting Government and non-government agencies to work together in a more integrated and effective way to achieve positive outcomes.
- To provide increased flexibility and support to existing services, to address the needs of people with complex support needs.
- To provide an integrated and holistic response to complex needs - (physical, mental, social, environmental) to improve overall health outcomes.
Panel members use an agreed framework that aims to maximise the skills, knowledge and strengths of panel members. The aim of program outcomes for clients engaged in CNAPIS support is to improve/stabilise their AOD use, improve self-management of mental health condition/s and maximise client engagement and independence in the community.
CNAPIS considers client participation as paramount and seeks to develop an individual client service plan to guide and define the nature of service support to the client; these plans are developed collaboratively in partnership with the client and are implemented within a case management approach.
