Wellways is proud to have been selected as the new provider of four Prevention and Recovery Care (PARC) Services in collaboration with NorthWestern Mental Health (NWMH), part of Melbourne Health from 1st July 2020.

This news announcement means Wellways will become one of the leading providers of PARC services in Victoria, managing a total of ten PARC services throughout the state.  Jasmine Corbo, Regional Manager said “we are so pleased to have the opportunity to deliver our innovative, recovery focused programs more broadly across the North and Western areas of Melbourne. We are also excited about the career opportunities this creates for our staff in the organisation, and in the wider sector.” 

Wellways will work in partnership with Melbourne Health (NorthWestern Mental Health) to support participants across the four PARC services located in Preston, Broadmeadows, Flemington and Deer Park. Wellways has over 40 years delivering mental health supports and is a leading Prevention and Recovery Care (PARC) provider, with eight Step-Up Step-Down services currently operating across Victoria and the ACT.

“Our programs offer an individualised approach to supporting recovery within a short term residential environment, with a focus on connecting with peers and the community; supporting a strong sense of self and focus toward the future, and celebrating the individuality and uniqueness of those who come through the door”, Ms Corbo said.

This is an exciting time for Wellways as we expand our services in this area of Melbourne and work collaboratively with North Western Mental Health, participants and their families to deliver our high standard of supports.
