Personal Stories

Lived experience of mental illness

These stories are from carers and consumers and those working in mental health, many of whom are also carers and consumers.

At One Door Mental Health we understand what it means to live with mental illness as a carer or consumer.  80% of our staff are either consumers or carers.  Many of our staff work permanent part-time, enabling them to manage work and home life better.
