In keeping with a policy of mainstreaming wherever possible, specialist psychiatric care for people experiencing acute episodes of mental illness is primarily provided at the three major general hospitals in the state.

Case management and support in the community include community-based mental health services in each district for adults with mental illness, community dementia and psychogeriatric support services and case management and support services for children and adolescents with mental health problems and mental disorders.

Rehabilitation and long term support services are provided in the community for people with long-term functional mental illnesses through a range of day programs.
