mental health professional and a treatment plan is developed with the client. With the client’s agreement she is referred within the service for other
wellness treatment modalities such as seeing the nutritionist for her dietary needs, followed by a meeting with the hypnotherapist thorugh the healing

joined the drumming and dancing therapy group run by the centre to increase her social interaction and to develop new relationships. As part of the
recovery approach, she attended the Evidence Based Wellness Recovery Action Plan training (WRAP) to assist her personal wellness and development.
The client linked her employer to the centre through the Positive Academy Program and the employer offers mental health first aid training to its staff.
The Wellness Centre has also embraced the new Australia’s National Disability Insurance Scheme program (the NDIS) to provide comprehensive
and integrated psychosocial services for mental health clients. The program aims to assist the clients to reimagine their lives and to improve the
quality of their life’s so that they can reintegrate into society after episode of illness.
