The Junction Clubhouse is a place for people with a lived experience of mental Illness to come along, belong and recover. We are a community of people living with mental illness who support each other in our recovery goals. The Junction is a safe, non-clinical environment.  

Would you like to become a member?

You will have:

1. Lived experience of mental Illness

2. Belief recovery is possible

We offer opportunities for friendship, employment, education and purposeful work while understanding that each person has individual needs and goals that may need a variety of supports at different times.

Is The Junction still free?

Before the NDIS, The Junction was allocated funding to offer psychosocial support - so no-one had to pay a fee.

The NDIS was introduced to fund programs for people with a disability but not all people with a mental illness are able to get an NDIS package. 

If you have an NDIS package, you use this for your psychosocial support at The Junction. 

If you don't have an NDIS package, we are able to access government funding - so no-one misses out!  

If you would like more information, please contact Greg or Nat on 40814640

Testimonials

Courage and Kindness are both key to people in recovery and to the community understanding mental illness. Stigma is born out of fear of the unknown. If we respond to that fear with courage and kindness, you become a part of recovery. If we allow fear and stigma, we further add to the illness.
