Woden Community Service’s mental health programs are adapting to the rapidly changing situation with COVID-19. We are supporting participants in new ways and want to emphasise that all our programs are open to referrals to meet the current mental health needs of our community.
Getting back on track...
New Path is an early intervention service, supporting people typically aged between 18 and 35 and up to 64, to tackle severe mental health issues before they become a longer-term problem.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, New Path will support people in our programs via telephone and online, including video link. This is to help keep participants, their loved ones and the community at large healthy and safe.
Some of the things a New Path Recovery Worker can support people with include:
• managing symptoms of mental ill-health
• planning for how to keep safe and well
• engaging with online communities such as Beyond Blue and SANE Australia
• preparing for employment or volunteering
• engaging with online education
• connecting with other support networks such as housing and Centrelink
• building life skills including routines and resilience.
Who can access the program?
• People living, working or studying in the ACT
• People not eligible for the NDIS and for whom the NDIS is not the most appropriate pathway
