Are you worried about the mental health of someone you know?

You may be concerned about someone close to you but are unsure how to approach them about the topic or how you can help them. Although this topic may feel difficult to talk about, it is usually best to try, rather than leave it unsaid. It could be best to ask the person if they need help to manage how they are feeling.

We offer referral appointments designed to tailor the appropriate plan around someones needs. If you are a family or friend of someone who struggles with mental health and you believe they would benefit from residential services, you can refer them to us. Uniting will review your referral and organise a face to face assessment to discuss the needs of the person and the suitability for the program. 

You are welcome to invite support people such as a support worker or carer to this appointment.
