CAN Mental Health was amalgamated into One Door Mental Health on 1st March 2017.
CAN's contracts and funding ended on 30th June 2017.
CAN Mental Health was a not-for-profit organization championing recovery for mental health consumers. With strong peer input and leadership, CAN provided an insightful approach to the provision of mental health services. CAN services were mostly funded from supporters and fundraising.
Central and Eastern Sydney PHN were funding CAN MH to provide an after hours peer-managed Phone Connections service to the region. This funding expired on 30th June 2017 and as such the Phone Connections service came to a close.
One Door Mental Health had the honor of being approached by CAN MH to amalgamate due to the close connection of our values and mission to work with people affected by mental health and their families.
Many of One Door's staff and board members have lived experience of mental illness, either as a consumer or a carer. So we understand what you are experiencing.
We will continue our work in pioneering peer work and to put advocacy at the forefront of the mental health agenda in Australia.
If you previously used CAN's services, please call One Door Information and Support on 1800 843 539 to see how we can help you.
