Taking charge of your mental wellbeing
Horizons is a state-wide short-term, intensive outreach program that equips people experiencing episodic, severe mental health conditions with the tools needed to take charge of their mental wellbeing. It utilises two platforms – outreach and group programs.
The Horizons team provides short-term, outreach support assisting people to build strategies, skills and resources to work towards individual goals for their personal recovery. Individual, client-led support can be provided for up to 26 weeks. The program addresses a gap in psychosocial support services for Tasmanians, as anyone can be referred from their GP or community service.
Horizons is supported by Primary Health Tasmania under the Australian Government’s Primary Health Networks Program and is focused on each participant’s unique mental health experience, responding to their needs and strengths. The program is planned to equip participants to manage their mental health issues – even when severe – so they can lead a fulfilling life.
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.
