One Door Mental Health is the Official NSW Corporate Games Charity for 2018
One in five Australians experience a mental illness each year. Every day, at least 6 Australian die from suicide.
Mental illness is a term that is used to describe any condition that affects the way you think, feel or act. Mental illness also includes addiction to substances including alcohol and other illicit drugs.
When we talk about ‘severe and persistent’ mental illness we are talking about conditions that stop you from leading an ordinary life, this is also known as a psycho-social disability. It is often episodic making it challenging for those with lived experience to maintain a stable life.
One Door Mental Health is a leading mental health service provider specialising in severe and persistent mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, psychosis, schizoaffective disorder, borderline personality disorder.
Improving mental health in the workplace has become a priority. One Door Education & Training offer a number of workshops tailored to various companies and organisations.
