We work alongside consumers, their families and carers to achieve the best possible outcome for those accessing our services and to support their recovery.

As a clinical mental health service, we assess and treat people with mental illness.  

We practice within the recovery principles framework and work with consumers, their families and carers to:

  • identify and achieve the consumer's goals
  • improve their functioning
  • enhance quality of life

The most effective pathway to recovery usually involves a combination of medical, social and psychological supports. We work alongside people to support their recovery from mental illness.
