Are you under 25?

We understand that being young has its own set of challenges. Sometimes it is confusing, frustrating and scary when your mind is not working the way you think it should. We offer a range of services specifically designed to assist young people on their journey to recovery, ranging from drop-in spaces, supported accommodation through to medical and psychological services.

Kurinda specialises in providing assistance to young people experiencing mental illness between the ages of 14 and 24 years. We are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and provide assistance in social and personal development, as well as life skills throughout the recovery journey.

Time Out is for young people aged between 15 and 25 years who might be experiencing the early signs of mental illness. We provide support early in the recovery journey to increase the likelihood of a positive long-term outcome. We provide support both within the community and at our drop-in Time Out house.

Our Youth Engagement Program provides an overall approach to mental health with young people as its focus. It is designed specifically to provide the best possible assistance to those who might be experiencing the early signs of mental illness. By engaging young people as peers, we have developed an approach to mental health services that speaks directly to those affected and allows us to put them in touch with the support they may need

Are you over 25?

Community Connections focuses on reconnecting clients and participants with their chosen community through the facilitation and promotion of community-based activities.

Housing and Accommodation Services offers both short and long-term accommodation and support services

The focus of Independent Living is to assist clients and participants to have an independent lifestyle, whether they are experiencing mental illness or have an intellectual disability. It is designed to provide outreach support, skills training and mentoring

PHaMs is a federal government-funded program that operates throughout New South Wales and Queensland in partnership with non-government organisations. We walk alongside our clients through their recovery journey so that they can lead independent lives.

Aftercare is committed to developing its people as well as its programs and services. Our approach here is twofold:

  • Education and Training which involves partnerships with educational institutions, internships and on-the-job and classroom/web-based training
  • Research enables us to constantly evaluate our policies and practices, make changes and recommendations so that we can provide the best possible services for our clients, as well as allowing us to contribute to the field of community-based care
