Neami Western Sydney provides individual recovery support for mental illness and mental health needs in the Western Sydney area. We support people in their recovery while also helping them to strengthen their connections to the community and support networks.

 

Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative (HASI)

Through the HASI program, we provide flexible, community-based support, so people can:

  • Identify their values and goals and make progress towards achieving them
  • Manage medication and treatment
  • Enhance their physical health and wellbeing
  • Participate in the community of choice
  • Gaining greater independence

People work with a support worker who will use their professional skills to listen and support people during regular visits in their home and local community. Their role is to support people to increase their independence and build skills in self-advocacy.

 

Bridging and transition support

Together with the NSW government, we can support people who are being admitted to or are leaving hospital or a care unit.

We help people to put together a plan to successfully transition back into the community and avoid a relapse.

 

Group programs

Our group programs support people to develop knowledge, skills and resources that are consistent with their personal goals and values. Neami Western Sydney offers the group programs Flourish and the Optimal Health Program.
