Through One Door Mental Health, people in the Illawarra and Shoalhaven regions living with mental illness can find an inclusive community, innovative services, and advocacy support.

One Door Mental Health is a leading mental health and National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) service provider specialising in severe and persistent mental illnesses.

Staff work alongside people using recovery-oriented practices.

Creating a world in which people living with a mental illness are valued and treated as equals is at the heart of everything One Door Mental Health does.

For more than 30 years, it has pioneered paths, supported friends, provided direction and changed the landscape for people living with severe and persistent mental illness in NSW.

The One Door Illawarra Clubhouse is located in Auburn Street Wollongong, and offers a safe, supportive, respectful environment for people living with mental illness.

It's a place people can go to meet other people, take part in activities and find the help they need on their mental health journey.

Visitors are warmly welcomed by people who understand your experiences and lived them before.

One Door Mental Health's centre at West Street in Nowra is a support service for people living and recovering from mental illness in the Shoalhaven area.

It offers individual support in addition to group-based activities in the centre and in the community.

The team at West Street support people to engage in social and recreational activities through one-on-one links and group activities.

For many people, sharing their mental health journey with people who have lived experience is one of the most important parts of their recovery.

One Door Mental Health is currently operating face-to-face NDIS supports for individuals and groups within COVID-safe protocols.

Both the Illawarra Clubhouse and West Street Nowra also have staff who can provide NDIS support co-ordination.
