Mind AustraliaMind Australia is a leading provider of community mental health services.
We support people to live connected, productive and satisfying lives.
Established nearly 40 years ago, Mind Australia is a leading non-government provider of mental health and psychosocial disability support services with over 60 service sites throughout Australia. This year, we will support almost 11,500 Australians whose lives have been disrupted by mental ill-health (including their families and carers).
Through the relationships we build with our clients and their carers, and the practical assistance we offer, we help people to gain better mental health and improve the quality of their lives. Each person's journey of recovery and wellbeing is different and Mind focuses on helping each individual plan and work towards their own life goals.
We have a range of services, both residential and out in the community, allowing us to respond to the variety of people's support needs. These include:
helplines that provide information, guidance and referrals
outreach support services that provide 1-to-1 practical help and motivational support
care coordination for those who need a lot of different health and social services
residential programs that provide a safe, supportive environment in which to work more intensively on recovery (both youth and adult-oriented services)
psychological counselling and therapy
group activities that offer social connection and mutual support
courses and workshops for skill building and helping people learn how to manage their health and wellbeing
online forums where peers can share their insights and support each other, and
support for families and carers so they can have some respite from the demands of caring.
We work hard to engage with families, friends and other carers to involve them in decisions about their loved one's care. We also have support services specifically for carers.
