Mental Health

The Rockingham Peel Group (RkPG) provides mental health services to adults living in the communities of Kwinana, Rockingham, Mandurah, Pinjarra and Waroona.

We take pride in our strong links with our community partners and the community at large.

We focus on providing the best outcomes for our clients while offering a stimulating environment for our staff to develop as professionals. 

Visiting our mental health services

Changes to visitor arrangements have been introduced in line with other public hospitals through WA.

As hospitals care for people when they are at their most vulnerable, these changes will help them, our staff and the wider community safe from the spread of COVID-19.

Please read about these changes below before attending our mental health services.

Keeping COVID-19 safe at mental health care services

To keep patients and staff safe during COVID-19, we have changed how we deliver mental health care across our hospitals and community mental health services.

While how we deliver your care has changed, providing mental health support to you remains our priority. Read more below about how we can keep working together, even with these changes, or download the flyer (PDF 193KB).

Telephone and video appointments

Our community service appointments are now via telephone or video call rather than face-to-face.

Rockingham and Peel adult and older adult mental health therapeutic groups and day programs are operating via telephone or video call (online groups).

We will contact you to talk about changes to your appointments.

Face-to-face appointments

Face-to-face appointments and home visits will only occur where clinically required.

Your clinical issues and where you will have your appointment will need to be assessed before we provide a face-to-face appointment.

You will not be able to attend an urgent face-to-face appointment if you:

  • are unwell with COVID-19 type symptoms
  • received a positive swab result within the last two weeks
  • are a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case
  • under quarantine or self-isolation.

If you need a support person

We understand that sometimes you want a support person to attend your appointment, however we encourage you to attend your appointment independently if you can manage or encourage your support person to wait outside.

Read information for all visitors on proof of vaccination documents and screening processes.

At your appointment

Our staff will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) to all face-to-face appointments. This includes wearing surgical masks with either goggles or a face shield, and possibly gloves and a surgical gown.

If you have an urgent face-to-face appointment, you will be required to:

Visiting inpatients

Visiting to all wards is managed via a diary system. To make a booking, please phone the ward your family member has been admitted to. Please note we care for many patients and may not always able to meet your visiting requests.

Before entering the ward visitors will be reminded of standard protocols including bringing items onto the ward.

Family meetings will be conducted via telephone, where possible.

Looking after yourself during COVID-19

COVID-19 has changed the way we live our lives, and it important to look after yourself to try and stay healthy and connected.
