Welcome to One Door Parramatta

Frangipani House 

We have successfully moved in to our new premises at 6 Grose Street Parramatta, and have kicked off 2018 in our lovely new site! If you haven’t done so already, we encourage you to stop by for a visit to our new site.

When living with a mental illness, it can be difficult to find the understanding and support you need to recover. 

One Door Parramatta offers a centre-based service called Frangipani House. At Frangipani House you are always welcome. We provide a safe, supportive, respectful environment.

At Frangipani House we offer a range of social, recreational and educational activities for adults experiencing persistent mental illness. These activities include mystery trips, birthday lunches, arts and crafts, creative writing and self-development workshops.

Frangipani House is a place where you can look after more than just your mental health. We regularly run physical health programs to help you quit smoking and make better nutrition and lifestyle choices to complement your mental health journey. You’re also welcome to drop by for a coffee and a chat.

Frangipani House is run by One Door Mental Health. Each member of Frangipani House is welcome, wanted and expected to arrive each day.

One Door Frangipani House provides:

  • An environment where people can come to learn daily living skills, work on social and community engagement ether individually or in a group setting.
  • ‘Adult Literacy’ - the program is receiving excellent feedback from our clients who report that it is both ‘engaging and educational’.
  • ‘Healthy Tuesday’ – clients are engaging in healthy cooking and gentle exercise including: circuit training, stretching and walking.
  • ‘Men’s Group’ and ‘Women’s Group’ – in these forums clients will participate in structured discussions of topics including ‘physical and sexual health’ and ‘family relationships’.
  • Outings to various points of interest within Sydney and surrounding regions.

We always welcome suggestions for activities at Frangipani House. 

All services at Frangipani House can be accessed through the NDIS.

We are well into the swing of 2018 at Frangipani House, as you can see by our February program! Our biggest news this month is that we will now be opening on Fridays between 9am-2pm for our specially-designed skill-building groups. This month, our Friday groups will include: literacy, numeracy and technology/IT workshops and cooking skills groups. 
 
We have some engaging and fun excursions planned for the month also. A RiverCat cruise to Manly and a shopping trip to Fairfield markets are among the highlights this month! I am very pleased to say that we have experienced phenomenal growth in numbers of clients attending the excursion each Wednesday. With this in mind, I need to emphasise that bookings are absolutely essential for participation, and can be made via telephone, email or in person.
 
As always, we have a wonderful variety of enjoyable, recovery-focussed groups planned for Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Client favourites such as: Pet Therapy with Benny the Labradoodle, Healthy Cooking groups, Mental Health Workshop, and Men’s and Women’s groups will be back. New additions include: Creative writing group, ‘Netflix and Popcorn’, and Art and Craft: ‘Collage Making’. 
 
The Frangipani team are experienced at facilitating group program participation, and one-to-one supports for NDIS clients so individuals can work towards their goals. If you have any questions regarding inclusion of Frangipani House as a service provider as part of your own NDIS plan, or that of your client of family member; or if you have any questions about our program, please don’t hesitate to contact us via the details on this page.
