Psychosocial Support Program

A father and daughter smile down at a mobile phone. Psychosocial support program offered by Forrest Personnel.

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

We can help if you are experiencing severe or persistent mental illness, or facing other complex life challenges such as homelessness or substance use.

We support your recovery and ongoing health by identifying and connecting you to the services you need.

Our program is not related to your employment status and does not require you to undertake any job search or work-related activities.

It is a voluntary and free program.

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 funded by the Australian Government as part of the National Psychosocial Support (NPS) program.

 

PLEASE NOTE: This program is currently only available within the Greater Bunbury Region and Narrogin Corridor

 

Your first steps
  1. Make an appointment to meet one of our Support Facilitators.

  4. Continue to meet your Support Facilitator to review and change your recovery plan as needed.
