If you have received recognition for any of the units being assessed in this assignment (CHCMH402B, CHCMH404B, CHCMH501A, CHCMH409A and/or CHCMH405A) then you must contact your teacher to determine which components of this assignment you are required to complete.

How you will be assessed

CHCMH501A is a graded unit.  Each task/question/section is awarded marks as specified.  The marks contribute to overall grade for the unit depending on the weighting of each assessment task.

CHCMH402B, CHCMH404B, CHCMH409A and CHCMH405A are competency based.  In order to be deemed competent in these units you must satisfy all elements specific to the units, the essential knowledge and the critical aspects of assessment in a range of situations.  Each assignment has been developed to cover these criteria and your OTEN teacher will review all assignments and approve your overall result to deem you competent in each unit.

All components of the assignment need to be submitted and a mark of at least 50% to achieve a pass result for this assignment.

Please reference your work. Referencing guides are available on the OLS under Assessment Guidelines


Task 1 50 marks

Research indicates that the involvement of a carers and family members can aid in the recovery process for clients with a mental illness. Burge (2007) states that:

“When family & friends stay actively engaged the person with the mental illness is more likely to avoid some of the more devastating outcomes of the illness such as social alienation, interaction with justice systems, homelessness and the development of chronic relapse patterns”

Utilising the client/case study you have nominated from your workplace (or another service that provides assistance to consumers and carers), discuss the merits of Burge’s claim.  Please include:

·       An example of a Recovery Plan that you have compiled (utilising the information and input of a person experiencing mental health issues) and that has successfully incorporated specific roles for family members and carers.

·       A description of your role in engaging, supporting, encouraging and reviewing/monitoring the involvement of carers in the client’s recovery process.

·       An evaluation of the client’s progress and the client’s and carer’s effectiveness of this involvement.

Task 2 50 marks

Utilising the same case study information, you must complete a report which includes the following:

·       Utilising the information and resources of other relevant practitioners, you are required to:

Plan, conduct, review and describe a comprehensive assessment with a person who is experiencing mental health issues.  In conjunction with other relevant practitioners, you are required to formulate a relevant diagnosis, utilising a relevant and current DSM IV/V.

·       On the basis of the diagnosis formulated above, you are required to Design, implement and review a comprehensive Recovery Plan. Include in your response all the methods of support selected and evidence used to support the efficacy of these methods.


·       Evaluate the effectiveness of the recovery plan.  Include in your answer a description of any barriers to recovery that were encountered and how these were addressed.
