Types of Treatment

Just as every person is unique, the pathway to recovery will be different for everyone – there is no one-size-fits-all treatment approach.
The type of treatment best suited to the person and their family/carer will depend on factors including age, medical risk, symptoms and any additional medical and/or mental health problems. Whatever the issues, early treatment is always preferable.

Treatment typically involves collaboration between the person and a number of health professionals, including medical doctors (GPs, psychiatrists, paediatricians), nurses, mental health and allied health professionals (e.g. dietitian, psychologist, social worker).  Carer involvement in treatment is also associated with better outcomes.
