Mental Health Services

Here at Community Links Wellbeing, all programs provided under our mental health program are holistic, voluntary, solution focused and include overall wellbeing.

ReFrame supports young people aged 12-25 years living in living in Wollondilly and Wingecarribee. The service is delivered by mental health professionals and youth engagement workers within a hub-based and outreach framework. The program has developed strong linkages with local GP’s, community mental health teams and other community based organisations to ensure that the youth are provided with a supportive wraparound service.

You in Mind provides support to the community by providing a mental health professional such as a Psychologist or Social Worker, at a time, location and venue that works best for the consumer to navigate their psychological therapy. The mental health professional provides evidence-based and person centered support to improve the consumer’s overall wellbeing.

Kaleidoscope is a program offering support to children and young people 4-17 yrs who are living in a family impacted by mental health concerns or challenges. The program is open to children and young people living in the Wollondilly or Wingecarribee LGAs. Kaleidoscope is delivered under an early intervention framework to engage children and young people to access support services, resources and ultimately encourage social connections with other young people in their community.

Holistic Youth Program (HYP) links young people living with complex mental illness with quality interventions and supports best suited to their individual needs. Similar to that of ReFrame, it is youth focused (12-25 year olds) however the mental health clinician also works in conjunction with a Peer Support Worker who can provide practical intervention.

Now offering a FREE Sexual Health Clinic for 15-29 year olds at our Bowral office. Services are delivered by a Nurse Practitioner the 4th Monday of every month from 3pm-5pm. Good sexual health means making sure you have the right information with a respectful and positive attitude to make informed sexual choices.
