Mental Health Community Support Service
Dianella Mental Health Community Support Services work with people who are living in the communtiy who are suffering from a diagnosed mental illness.
Our Day to Day Living program is aimed to provide clients with the opportunity for developing social skills and independent living skills either within a group environment at a Dianella centre.
As part of the individualised service, a key worker will work with a client on establishing meaningful goals and will them work towards their recovery.
Our services provide clients with a safe and supportive environment where they can work on increasing their quality of life by reducing social isolation through the development of social networks, developing self esteem, increasing motivation and developing new or re-learning old skills.
Anyone who has a diagnosed mental illness and wants to be involved in meeting new people and learning new skills can join our Day to Day Living program.
