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 mental health support workers can help you through the process of recovery and connect you to services in Auburn and the surrounding neighbourhoods.
We want to see increased access to existing mental health services by CALD community members with mental illness, their families and carers. We want to strengthen the coordination, referral pathways and connections between CALD people in the Auburn area including general practioners, allied health providers, government agencies, health services, and other various community services.
Our bilingual mental health support 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 bilingual mental health support workers who speak Arabic, Chinese and Vietnamese.
One Door is currently funded by WentWest PHN to provide the Bilingual Support Worker program in collaboration with Auburn Disability Services.
