Community Support

Recovery from mental illness happens best when people have the right support.


As a result of mental illness you may experience:

  • Social isolation
  • Difficulty with daily living
  • Interruption to work and study
  • Physical health issues
  • Low self esteem
  • High levels of non-prescription drug use

Ermha’s Community Support program can help you overcome barriers to recovery so you can achieve your goals. We can help you achieve

  • Increased social Inclusion
  • Greater independence
  • Stronger skills
  • Improved physical health
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Your Employment and training goals
  • Connections to other services
  • Stronger relationships
  • Creative expression

Community Support is best suited to you if you:

  • Live in the City of Casey, Shire of Cardinia or the City of Greater Dandenong
  • Are aged 16-64
  • Experience persistent mental illness

* If you live outside of these areas, it is possible that Ermha can still support you.
