Plus Social Program

For people with severe and enduring mental health concerns

From 1 July 2018 a new service will commence on the Gold Coast for people with severe mental illness. This service is called the Plus Social Program. The Plus Social Program provides:
  • Service information, intake and triage service into currently funded GCPHN organisations
  • Clinical care coordination, and
  • After hours community based space.

The clinical care coordination component provides:

  • supports for individuals with, or for young people at risk of, severe mental illness
  • time limited (up to 26 weeks) clinical care coordination and wellbeing program
  • structured, recovery and goal oriented services focused on creating significant improvements in quality of life, health and wellbeing
  • the patient-centred medical home and healthcare neighbourhood model, to support integrated care and enhanced community access to supports.

Referrals to the Plus Social Program can only be from a GP or private psychiatrist. The service provider for the Plus Social Program is Primary and Community Care Services Limited.

Information in relation to when the after hours community space is accessible will be available shortly.

For more information on the Plus Social Program, please contact Bonnie Ellery on 07 3186 4000 or email on
