Mentis Assist provides specialised mental health support for people living with a mental illness.
Mentis Assist is one of Victoria’s primary not-for-profit, non-government, community managed mental health service providers supporting people with mental illness and psychiatric disabilities.
With a 30 year history in the provision of high quality mental health support in the Bayside Peninsula region and recently expanding into the South Eastern and Outer Eastern areas of Casey and Cardinia, Maroondah, Knox and the Yarra Ranges, we have supported thousands of people from all walks of life as they achieve their goals.
Mentis Assist supports individuals and their families, offering a range of services including one on one outreach and in office support, service and care co-ordination, group activities, family support and a suite of training and meaningful activity options.
We assist people to recognise their values, strengths and goals, with an emphasis on improving health and wellbeing, independence, social participation and enhancing meaningful relationships with family and significant others.
Our workforce consists of highly trained professionals and peers who are well supported by the organisation to provide recovery orientated, person-centred, strengths-based therapeutic and clinical practices.
Our recovery framework is grounded on the following domains:
- Promoting a culture of hope
- Promoting autonomy and self-determination
- Collaborative partnerships and meaningful engagement
- Focus on strengths
- Holistic and personalised care
- Inclusive of family, carers, support people and significant others
- Community participation and citizenship
- Responsive to diversity
- Reflection and learning
