Our team, from the Board of Directors through to staff and contractors at all sites, are a diverse group of individuals passionate about helping others to live happy, healthy lives.

We go the extra mile to support our patients, clients, partners and community, through a culture of ongoing continuous improvement, skill development and team building activities.

We are a Mental Health First Aid 'Gold MHFA Skilled Workplace', which means at least 40% of our team have completed Mental Health First Aid. All team members have the opportunity to participate in specialised cultural capacity building and multicultural mental health annually, to help develop their knowledge and skillset in working with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally and linguistically diverse communities. Our team are also drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and expertise, including those who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, speak a language other than English at home and those who have lived experience of mental health, either personally or in caring for a family member or friend. This approach allows us to work more meaningfully with our clients, including through use of a peer support model and in providing culturally safe support.
