Neami is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation providing services to improve mental health, suicide prevention and wellbeing in local communities.
Using a recovery approach, we support people to improve their wellbeing, live independently and pursue a fulfilling life. Our way of working is informed by current research and person-centred practice, backed by over 30 years of experience in the community mental health sector.
We believe that everyone can live a good life based on their values, strengths and goals. Our job is to walk beside people and support their recovery.
Our approach supports people to identify personal values, goals and to make progress towards them. Often through connecting with informal and formal community supports. We take a recovery-based and evidence-informed approach to person-centred practice.
In collaboration with inpatient and community-based clinical services, we evaluate and adapt our services to support consumers to avoid hospitalisations as they become unwell. This work also includes supporting a consumer’s transition back to the community following hospitalisation.
Neami Mandurah and Neami Rockingham are both part of the Psychosocial Support Southern Team. Both sites provide 2 groups daily that aim to help you to develop social networks and strengthen relationships, participate in community activities and increase your independence and confidence. Individual Support is strengths based and informed by the Collaborative Recovery Model (CRM) which aims to identify personal values and goals and collaborate on making progress to achieve them.
