In August 2009, SA Health's Portfolio Executive approved the transfer of the operational management of the Rural & Remote Health Service to CHSA. The RRMHS delivers comprehensive mental health services to the communities of country South Australia by providing:
- acute inpatient care
- mental health training to staff
- distance consultation-liaison services
- coordination and management of mental health specialists
- clinical services to remote Aboriginal Communities
With the establishment of CHSA as a health region, it was deemed appropriate for these services for country people to be managed by CHSA. It has been acknowledged that the integration of the RRMHS within a country service delivery system is also a critical factor in supporting the establishment and operation of new levels of treatment and acute care in rural locations, such as Limited Treatment Centres and Intermediate Care.
