Membership & Referral

This includes people who struggle to care for themselves independently, sustain relationships or work, or have experienced recurrent crisis leading to frequent hospital admissions/interventions.
To join you need to be referred by a mental health professional. This can be your care coordinator, psychiatrist, social worker, or community psychiatrist nurse.
