About us

We work with people to build resilience, overcome barriers, regain hope, reconnect with their communities and realise their goals.

" Living with a mental illness should not preclude a person from leading a meaningful and fulfilling life based on their individual values and goals. Recovery involves regaining hope, re-connecting to the community, taking responsibility for one’s own life and being able to participate in education, employment, recreational, social and other meaningful activities. within Australia partners with individuals in their recovery journey. "

Our services, which support people living with a mental illness, their families and carers, include psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery oriented programs, respite, support facilitation (care co-ordination) through the Partners in Recovery program, online training and Individualised Client Support Packages.
