Mental illness can be a very isolating experience. It can also be very difficult to navigate the mental health sector and connect to the right services for you and your family.
If you or your family members are experiencing mental illness including anxiety, depression or schizophrenia, our bilingual mental health workers can assist you to navigate services and provide emotional support whilst you're getting referrals and receiving treatment.
We want to see increased access to existing mental health services by Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) community members with mental illness, their families and carers. We want to strengthen the coordination, referral pathways and connections between Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) people in the Auburn area including general practitioners, allied health providers, government agencies, health services, and other various community services.
Our bilingual mental health workers work closely with other services including ADSi, Settlement Services, NSW Health and Community Services, as well as specialists such as psychologists, GPs and allied health professionals to identify and link individuals, their families and carers to appropriate supports.
We have a diverse team of bilingual mental health workers with backgrounds in social work and psychology, who speak Arabic, Mandarin and Vietnamese.
One Door is currently funded by WentWest PHN to provide the Bilingual Mental Health Support Service.
