Neami Perth provides a range of support services to people experiencing mental ill-health to make positive changes to their mental health and wellbeing. This may include people who require assistance in the areas of skill development and social contact. We offer both group programs and individual support.

If you’d like more information about how Neami Perth can support you or someone else, please contact our team via the details above.

Community Outreach Support

Home and community outreach support involves a Neami Support Worker assisting a consumer to identify their strengths, values and goals and then working together to achieve or make progress towards these goals.

A clearly defined individual plan is developed, outlining areas to focus on, based on personal values and strengths. The role of the team at Neami Perth is to help people achieve their goals.

The amount of support varies depending on each person’s level of need and the funding program they are funded through.

Our Western Australian outreach services are funded by the Western Australian Government through the Individualised Community Living Strategy (ICLS) program.

Community and group programs

We provide a variety of group programs that bring people together around areas of common interest or need. This may include Neami’s peer-led, recovery focused group Flourish, as well as groups focused on health challenges, self-care, or community connection, for example. The common thread across groups is that they provide both guided and peer support to help people pursue their health and wellbeing goals.

Our groups programs support the development of knowledge, skills and resources that are consistent with your personal goals and values while benefiting from the shared experience of group work.

A multi-disciplinary team of community support workers run the programs, including people with an experience of mental health recovery.

Our group programs aim to help you to:

  • Develop your social networks and strengthen relationships
  • Participate in community activities
  • Increase your independence and confidence.

We aim wherever possible to connect people with mainstream community programs to support greater community connection and independence.
