The Pathways to Recovery Program is a psychosocial recovery based rehabilitation program which provides one on one support to participants who have a mental illness and are ready to work on their own recovery. Once a participant is accepted into the program a more comprehensive assessment is done with a Mental Health Support Worker. A recovery plan is developed from what the person would like to achieve.
The Program aims to provide support, education and skills building, so participants are able to have a better quality of life and live within the community without stigma.
The types of support available include:
- Support with living skills such as weekly shopping (including transport to the supermarket and assistance with meal planning and healthy food choices),
- Basic budgeting skills, and assistance with setting up direct debts or Centrelink deductions,
- Referrals to other services such as drug and alcohol services, counsellors, CAHS-MH. The support worker can assist participants to get to their appointments and accompany them if requested,
- Assistance with completing forms e.g.: application form for studies, NT Housing,
- Attending case conferences with all services involved with the participant’s care, to see what each service is doing for the participants and discuss any gaps of service,
- Advocacy, and
- Assistance with accessing the NDIS.
Who can participate?
To be eligible for the Pathways to Recovery Program participants need to be over 18 years of age and have a diagnosed mental illness. New participants can either self-refer or be referred through another service provider.
We welcome enquiries from people with an NDIS plan.
