Through One Door Mental Health, people living with mental illness and their families can find an inclusive community, innovative services and advocacy support.

Paving the path to changing attitudes and an end to stigma.

In a world where eight in ten people believe depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and bipolar all diminish a person’s ability to undertake something as simple as paid work it is clear the community needs comprehensive mental illness education.

In the 37 years that One Door Mental Health has been helping people with severe and persistent mental illness, we have learnt there is only so far that one-on-one support goes. There are barriers to people with lived experience getting the help they need. These barriers can be broad and deep. They include stigma, misunderstanding mental health and a lack of adequate resources.
