Psychosocial Support Program

Psychosocial Support Program

This program is currently only available within the Greater Bunbury Region and Narrogin Corridor.

Our psychosocial support program can help you take charge of your life.

We understand that as well as looking for work, our participants and job seekers may be dealing with other life challenges.

The Psychosocial Support Program enables us to refer participants to get further assistance with housing, community mental health services, drug and alcohol counselling, counselling for relationships, domestic violence, serious illness, and LGBQTI support, as well as financial counselling to assist with payment of utility bills, food and school supplies, and low-cost or no-cost food, clothing and furniture.

We work with you, your family, your carers and support workers and other organisations to make sure you receive the best possible support as you work towards your recovery and life goals.

Our service is voluntary and free and is funded by the Australian Government as part of the National Psychosocial Support (NPS) program.

Your first steps

  1. Make an appointment to meet one of our Support Facilitators.
  2. Develop a personalised recovery plan with your Support Facilitator to identify services you need.
  3. Your Support Facilitator will then connect you to these services, assisting you with appointments and paperwork, including applications for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) or Disability Support Pensions (DSPs).
  4. Continue to meet your Support Facilitator to review and change your recovery plan as needed.
