Improving access for mental health services and clients
The Mental Health Coalition for South Australia (MHCSA) as the peak body for non-governmental mental health services in SA work to influence the development, range and responsiveness of services to support those affected by mental health illness. Their Service Directory need to grow.
MHSCA came to us after the work we did for WAAMH in building their mental health Service Directory and Membership base. MHCSA sought to grow and enhance their Service Directory to assist it in becoming the largest in SA and to also ensure that organisations details were kept up to date.
The Service Directory needed to be a mobile responsive service that could be embedded into the current MHCSA website and other key websites.
The Service Directory built is easy to use and fully functional. It has been embedded on the MHCSA website and is mobile responsive. The directory makes it easier than ever for a visitor to find a relevant and responsible mental health service provider in SA in addition to making it easy for mental health providers to add their services and keep their details up to date.
The service assists in working towards one of MHCSA's key goals, removing the stigma around mental health illnesses and increase access within the community mental health sector. There is a simple administration area for staff to view and manage data of service directory organisations and generate reports. The system also incorporates service directory reminders, prompting organisations to check their information.
