Stories of strength, struggle and resilience
Recovery stories

Every year we support people around Australia to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Each one has an individual story of strength, struggle and resilience along the recovery journey. Here are a few stories from the people we work with.

Sami

'Having a home changed everything. My mental health was all over the place, but I wasn’t aware that I had any mental health issues.'

Paula

‘I was dual diagnosis, but it was never an issue. I was never told, we can’t deal with your addictions. It was, how can we support you to address both?’

Paula's Story

‘I thought it would be like hospital, so I was worried about coming here, but when I arrived, the staff were good and offered lots of support.’

Dean's Story

Bev

'I participate at Neami Carrington. I'm interested in helping set up the newsletter, I've researched names and articles. I did interview training and will help interview new staff. It was good to be involved and learn new skills.'

Mark and Kim

'It's the support that I get better on, yeah, the more supports I've got the better'
