Helping Tasmanians take charge of their mental wellbeing
Horizons helps Tasmanians experiencing episodic, severe mental health conditions take charge of their own mental wellbeing – and live the life they choose.
This free psychosocial support program is evidence-informed and short-term (up to 26 weeks). It responds to the needs and strengths of individuals, and focuses on the goals participants wants to achieve.
Horizons equips people experiencing severe and episodic mental health conditions with the right tools and support, so they can own and manage their mental wellbeing.
Our team are here to help participants create a pathway to mental wellbeing, offering them psychosocial support for up to 26 weeks. The program involves one-on-one sessions with one of our team, as well as access to a range of group sessions.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team are currently working with participants over the phone (or via virtual platforms such as Zoom). They help participants identify and work towards their own individual goals and recovery. Once the pandemic passes, our team will once again meet with participants in their homes (or a place that suits them).
Yes, this psychosocial support program is by referral only. GPs, community service organisations, clinical services, allied health professionals, psychiatrists or psychologists can refer people.
Supported by Primary Health Tasmania under the Australian Government’s Primary Health Networks Program.
