Wellness Connect – Continuity of Support

250 Wright Street, Adelaide SA 5000

Monday - Friday
8:30 am - 5:30 pm
Closed public holidays

Continuity of Support (CoS) provides non-clinical psychosocial support to consumers who previously accessed the Partners in Recovery (PIR), Support for Day-to-Day Living in the Community (D2DL) and Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) programs. The service supports people with complex mental illness who have been assessed as ineligible for the NDIS.

Services delivered under CoS are predominantly group-based and focused on building individual capacity, with additional targeted one-on-one support at times of increased need.

Group programs

Our groups bring together participants who share common interests and aspirations. The groups support participants to develop knowledge, build skills and find resources to achieve their recovery goals. Groups are co-facilitated by a Peer Support Worker and Community Rehabilitation Support Worker and focus on a range of areas, including:

  • Social and recreational activities.
  • Health, wellbeing and fitness.
  • Mental health and developing coping strategies.
  • Building life skills.
  • Gardening and healthy eating.
  • Creativity and the arts.

Working together

CoS is delivered by Wellness Connect, a consortium of mental health and community organisations led by Neami National and comprising Mission Australia, UnitingCare Wesley Bowden, Life Without Barriers and Community Access and Services SA. We work together towards a common purpose: to improve the health and wellbeing of people experiencing mental ill-health.

Eligibility and referrals

Referrals are closed: only consumers who have previously received support from the PHaMs, D2DL and PIR programs can access CoS.

Continuity of Support is funded by the Adelaide Primary Health Network – an Australian Government Initiative.
