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 believe that through our intimate understanding of the challenges facing individuals in regional areas, our passion for the communities in which we live and work, and by providing access to the highest level of care, quality programs and ongoing support, we can make a difference.
