General Counselling services provide a supportive and collaborative environment where you can discuss your concerns. Engaging in our service can help you clarify your situation, gain new perspectives and work towards change. We can support you to develop insights, generate solutions and consider choices in a non-judgmental environment and support you in linking with other mental health or self-help services.
Primary mental health clinical care
Our mental health nurse provides clinical care and coordination to people living with severe mental illness by:
- Monitoring the person’s mental state and supporting the consumer with their recovery goals
- Supporting the person and their general practitioner and or psychiatrist with medication management
- Monitoring and addressing a person’s co-occurring health conditions, through a physical health assessment and onward referrals if required
- Assisting the person with linking them to connections in the community.
Alcohol and other drug (AOD) services
We have a team of AOD counsellors, some of whom specialise in working with young people. They provide counselling and support to people wishing to reduce or cease their substance use. We also provide a home or a hospital detox program to selected clients.
Our nurses support the client when they are withdrawing from substances and are also available to support the client’s GP where the person is deemed suitable for a home based detox. At the client’s request we will provide a referral to residential detox elsewhere.
The Daybreak program is our day rehabilitation program. Clients can self-refer or be referred by a GP, or the correctional system.
