Indigo program

cohealth’s Indigo program works to remove barriers to services for our most disadvantaged clients. We work with adults (16+) experiencing any combination of mental illness, homelessness, disability, drug or alcohol abuse or with current or previous experience of the forensic system and their current service providers.

By taking the time to understand the history, needs and issues of each of our clients, we work to find solutions with clients and service providers that aim to provide stability in life to help clients improve their living conditions, health, wellbeing and feel safe and connected.

The Indigo program is a statewide assessment and care plan coordination service. This approach has been developed to respond to the needs of people eligible for DHHS Multiple and Complex Needs Initiative (MACNI), TAC and NDIS to assess and coordinate care plans with clients and service providers. We aim to help clients with multiple and complex needs receive the best service possible from their service providers.

We also work with service providers to build their skills to better understand each client’s personal needs and how best to work with them for optimal outcomes.

What do I need to do?

If you, or someone you know would like to know if you could benefit from Indigo, please contact us and we can link you with the appropriate external service provider to make a referral.

Service providers can contact Indigo regarding referrals and for training, mentoring and secondary consultation related to care coordination of clients with multiple and complex needs.
