Due to the diversity of the Diocese of Ballarat, formalised overarching partnerships with services are unable to occur.
Schools together with support from CEO Ballarat staff determine appropriate referral pathways based on the individual needs of students. Some of the organisations include:
• Centre against Sexual Assault
• Victoria Police
• Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services
• General Practitioners
• Department of Human Services
The Victorian System of Care Referral Matrix is a tool which supports parents and carers, school staff and other professionals to appropriately refer children and young people to mental health services.
