PROVIDING SUPPORT

COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAM

The Outreach Program provides support to enable individuals to recover, develop coping strategies and stay well.  The program seeks to minimise the disruption that can occur in a persons day-to-day living by reducing the length and frequency of hospital visits and providing community care as an alternative.

The Outreach Service provides skills and support for people seriously affected by anxiety and depression.

The program:

  • Provides support and education in the most functional and least restrictive environmen
  • Assists with reintegration back into the community

The aim is to provide support and education, which assists service users to:

  • Learn about and manage their illness
  • Recognise the precipitants to relapse
  • Adopt effective coping strategies
  • Improve their functioning
  • Provide carer information and education

The Program supports specialist programs in:
