St John of God community mental health services

St John of God Social Outreach's community mental health services are located in Western Australia and regional Victoria.

We provide free or low-cost specialised, community-based mental health treatment and support for people aged 16 and older.

Treatment and services available:

  • Individual counselling - one-on-one meetings with a clinician from our multi-disciplinary team for specialised support
  • Group therapy - an opportunity to connect with other people who are experiencing similar feelings and challenges
  • Psychiatric support - specialised treatment for people with ongoing mental health conditions
  • Sessions are time limited and may occur weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on each clients needs. Towards the end of care the length of time between sessions may increase.

Our caregivers come from clinical, health and social welfare backgrounds and, together, we offer a broad range of evidenced-based counselling, psychotherapy and mental health support and education services.

What's more, because all of our support staff live and work in the local communities they serve, our services are designed for - and with - the individuals and families that need them, in partnership with general practitioners and other local healthcare providers.

Understanding this local context, we're able to develop highly personalised support solutions that enable our clients to progress on their recovery journey.

By using an inclusive partnership model that involves carers, clients and connections with other healthcare providers and mental health services, we're able to provide self-determined, whole-wellbeing solutions designed around each person's unique situation and goals.

It's about walking with people on a highly personal journey of recovery. It's about providing a way forward, step by step, with integrated pathways to other health, wellbeing and community programs that enable people to move on and thrive.

Fees

As part of St John of God Social Outreach, we aim to ensure our services are as accessible as possible to all people in the community. With a referral and a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP, you may be eligible for low or no-cost mental health support services.

Clients attending Pomegranate Community Mental Health Service in Ballarat, Victoria and Ferns Community Mental Health Service locations in Western Australia can access support at no cost when they have a GP referral and Mental Health Care Plan, as services are bulk billed through Medicare. Clients attending the Glenrye Centre in Warrnambool, Victoria can access the services at either no or low cost, depending on their situation.

Initial Assessment Appointment

Please arrive 15 minutes early to your first appointment.

At the initial assessment appointment, we will ask a number of questions to gain a greater understanding of your situation. We want to ensure you receive the right treatment and care. If we are not the best service for your needs, we will assist you by linking you with alternative services.

We hope that you find our service a safe and supportive environment where you are an active participant in your own care and recovery. Your GP is a key partner in your health care and we will work closely with them to provide you with the best possible treatment. We also invite and encourage your family and carers to be involved, at a level you are comfortable with.
