Support Services

Telephone and Web based support information.

In this area, we have listed a number of support services available to assist mental health carers and those with mental health issues.  The range is not necessarily extensive to the point it covers all services but should at least provide a quality point for first contact.



 

For help with a transition into the NDIS please contact your support agency for further information or make contact through the NDIS helpline or website. The NDIS supports people with a permanent disability which affects their ability to take part in everyday living. You can find out if you qualify by doing an online access checklist or phone the NDIS hotline; the website has plenty of helpful information including an extensive list of service providers to suit your needs.
