Archer Street Health was founded by clinical psychologist Dr Philippa Cannan and psychiatrist Dr Anil Reddy.
After working together on an inpatient public mental health unit in Tasmania for over a decade, this clinic was founded in acknowledgement of the importance of multidisciplinary care for adults and children with mental health and behavioural difficulties.
We hope that by providing a comprehensive multidisciplinary service Archer Street Health will fill a gap in the mental health care services in Tasmania.
Our team comprises of consultant psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, paediatricians and neurologists.
Mental health and behavioural conditions are often multi-faceted and require the care of more than one professional. It is common for individuals to need the care of one or more health professionals when experiencing a mental health problem.
Archer Street Health is a multi-disciplinary health service that aims to enhance patient outcomes by combining care from a number of professional disciplines to provide holistic care to our clients.
Archer Street Health understands that the need to travel between multiple locations for care can add inconvenience and be a barrier to patients receiving the best care. We aim to reduce this burden by providing a one-stop-shop for mental health and behavioural needs.
Our service facilitates increased communication between the practitioners that an individual sees which in turn provides our clients with a greater continuity of care.
Archer Street Health was born from a desire to provide comprehensive care by connected professionals to deliver good outcomes to our clients.
We aim to support every client’s individual needs throughout their journey; from the first step of seeking help to well managed conditions that minimally impact quality of life.
Our aim is to offer a one-stop-shop for mental health and behavioural needs. Our clinic is conveniently located adjacent to a main road with easy access to public transport and plenty of free on street car parking spots.
We support General Practitioners enabling referrals to a multidisciplinary service, including medical specialists like psychiatrists and paediatricians and psychologists. We enhance patient outcomes by combining holistic care from a number of professional disciplines.
Our team specialise in a number of different therapies and use a biopsychosocial model to tailor treatments to the individual. This results in the individual receiving the most effective treatment for their particular needs, be it psychoeducation, group therapy, specific medications, structured individual therapies, or combinations of these.
