Our emotional and mental health has much to teach all of us, it is important that we recognise the intimate connections between our mental health and our backgrounds, cultures, beliefs and experiences.
Special and unique strengths exist in our Mob’s culture, the ability to have a good yarn is one of those major strengths. Our Mental Health team are here to walk and talk with you.
We offer a range of opportunities for patients, including workshops, one on one sessions, men’s and women’s groups and opportunities to connect with culture as part of a whole person approach.
