The Psychosocial Recovery Service (PRS) assists individuals with mental health issues to achieve their recovery goals.

What is psychosocial support? 

We’ll provide one-on-one support to talk about what recovery means for you and can work with you to:  

  • build skills to manage your mental health
  • develop social skills and friendships 
  • build relationships with family 
  • build capacity in managing day-to-day activities 
  • manage money 
  • find and look after a home 
  • increase educational, vocational and training skills 
  • address drug and alcohol use issues

How does PRS help? 

Together, we’ll build a plan for your future and set goals for you to get involved in the community and engage with others.
