Abstract: From the moment a mental health consumer is admitted to a mental health facility the plan for their discharge is commenced. Given the level of attention discharge is afforded, why are so many discharges reported by carers, in particular, as being woefully inadequate? This presentation will explore ways in which this extremely important area of the continuum of care can be improved including appropriate consultation and collaboration with families and carers.
