Psychosocial support

One-to-one coaching and group activities that support recovery for people with severe and persistent mental health issues.

What is psychosocial support?

We offers a range of recovery-based, flexible, community-based support services for people with severe or persistent mental health concerns.

Using a coaching model our support workers use their professional skills and lived experience to listen and support you during regular visits with you in your home and local community. Their role is to support you to increase your independence and build skills, including in self-advocacy.

The number of hours of support provided and the kind of work we do with each person depends on eligibility for different programs. This can range from an hour or two a week to daily check-ins and intensive support.

Support can help with the practical help with daily living, looking after your health, finding a home, gaining employment as well as improving your connections with family, friends and the community.

  • Identify your strengths
