New Path

Getting back on track...New path 400x400px 02

New Path is a mental health recovery program supporting people whose ability to manage daily activities and to live independently in the community has been seriously affected by mental health issues.

We support people typically aged 18 to 35, and up to 64, towards greater self-reliance, independence and participation.

We are an early intervention service, which means that we work with people to tackle severe mental health challenges before they become a longer-term problem.

Some of the things a New Path Recovery Worker can support you with include:

• managing your symptoms of mental ill-health
• getting your relationships back on track
• addressing drug, alcohol or smoking issues
• becoming involved in a social or community activity that you want to do
• engaging with education, employment or volunteering
• building life skills including confidence 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
