Self help

If you or someone you know are struggling with their mental health and/or are  having thoughts of suicide then you are not alone and you can get through this.

Getting your life back on track is not easy and it takes time to recover. It is important to see a GP or mental health worker to have a conversation and look at what is happening in your life. If this is not possible or you think the matter is more urgent then you can also make contact through the following numbers:

Self Help Support Services List

Our services

Country Wellness Connections (CWC)

CWC provides psychosocial support services to eligible participants in the Yorke and Northern Region of country SA.

While a diagnosis from a GP or other health professional is not required to access CWC, eligible participants must experience mental health concerns that are severe enough to impact everyday life. Participants must also not be assisted by the NDIS or be receiving other psychosocial supports that duplicates this service.

CWC is non-clinical, short term and flexible in its approach and is closely connected with mental health treatment services as per client needs.

 CWC services can include group-based and individual supports aiming to:

  • Assist Participants to identify their own individual needs and recovery goals
  • Build personal capacity and stability in areas as identified by the participant
  • Connect participants with mental health treatment services and other relevant support services as needed
  • Increase community participation and improve social connections to enhance mental health and general wellbeing of the participant

Participants with complex needs may also be supported to test their eligibility for NDIS.

This program is supported by funding from Country SA PHN through the Australian Government's PHN Program.

Accommodation support program (ASP)

ASP is an individual psychosocial rehabilitation and support service that assists individuals to achieve an optimum level of functioning and independence in self-care, health care, household management, behaviour management, and other activities that facilitate community living skills.

The level of support is determined through a process of clinical and functional assessment, negotiation and planning, in partnership with the client and Mental Health Services. The program is funded by the Country Health SA Local Health Network (LHN) and all referrals come from their Mental Health Services Team.

If you are receiving clinical support and would benefit from non-clinical psychosocial support as well as help to test your eligibility for an NDIS package, then talk to your clinician about a referral to ASP.
