Social Inclusion Programs

Doutta Galla's Social inclusion programs offer a range of diverse courses to support recovery and improve quality of life for individuals. Find out about the Flourish program, Optimal Health program, Fresh Start Quit Smoking Course, and Money Matters program.

Social Inclusion

The service’s key role is to support recovery and improve quality of life of individuals through providing:

  • Recovery Coaching - one on one sessions with a coach to establish what is meaningful in people’s lives and how to work towards this;
  • Pathways to Community - supporting access to community resources such as programs and services; and
  • Peer Leadership Initiatives - people who experience mental illness are viewed as having a legitimate human experience and the paradigm shifts a person from service user to empowerment.

People who are referred to the service have the opportunity to access any of the three streams or all, depending on their needs.
For further information about the streams of Social Inclusion, please contact Chester Street reception on on 9377 7100.
