Are you eligible for employment support?

You may be eligible for this free service if you have a mental illness that prevents you from:

  • obtaining employment; or
  • staying in employment; or
  • interacting with the wider community.


Support we offer:

  • When someone is living with a mental illness, Employment Services provide a community-based service for them to develop the confidence and skills needed to find jobs. We are here to help you set your own vocational goals, identify barriers and develop plans to achieve goals.


  • Employment Services can help you return to the workforce when you are ready. We also help those currently in work through advocacy, ongoing training and assistance with retaining employment.


We work closely with many social agencies to give you the best advice.
