As part of the support package for the Cashless Debit Card program, A Better Life (ABLe) services will support people with mental illness that includes drug and alcohol use disorders and/or gambling disorders.
ABLe provides increased opportunities for recovery for people aged 16 years and over, whose lives are affected by mental illness, by helping them to overcome social isolation and increase their connections to the community. Participants are supported through a recovery-focused and strengths-based approach that recognises recovery as a personal journey driven by the participant.
With the support of family and carers, Family Mental Health Support Services (FMHSS) provide early intervention support to children and young people up to age 18 years who are showing early signs of, or are at risk of developing, mental illness.
Individual Placement and Support program (IPS program)
The IPS program provides employment and vocational services, in tandem with clinical mental health and non-vocational support, to young people aged up to 25 years with mental illness.
Digital Work and Study Service
The Digital Work and Study Service (DWSS) has work and study specialists that can provide tailored support to young people with mental illness, aged up to 25 years, via a digital platform.
Young people can access the service through web chat, video conferencing, email and phone from anywhere in Australia to meet their work or study goals.
