Wellways Australia

www.wellways.org

Wellways Australia Limited is a leading not-for-profit mental health and disability support organisation with services spanning mental health, disability and community care, and reach thousands of people each year. We work with a diverse range of people living with mental health issues or various disabilities, and their families, friends and carers, to bring about positive change and build good lives in their communities. This can include creating a home, securing a job and building meaningful relationships.

Our mental health, disability and rehabilitation services bring together evidence from research with an understanding of people’s lived experience—what works for them. Our mental health workforce includes clinicians, nurses, community support workers and ‘peers’—those who have a lived experience of mental illness and recovery. Together, they create an environment that focuses on hope rather than illness.

We facilitate unforgettable experiences for children giving them a break from their caring roles and a safe environment to share their experiences with children living in similar circumstances and build a peer support network. We help children learn coping skills and build resilience, to manage their home lives and reduce vulnerability. As they reach school leaving age, we provide support and mentoring to help them into tertiary studies and/or employment. It is our philosophy that all children affected by family members with a mental illness deserve to be supported, to be valued and provided the opportunity to reach their potential.
