Your Life: Together
Ermha exists to ensure that People experiencing mental illness and cognitive disability and their carers can thrive in and become part of the community.
We choose to work with people experiencing mental illness and cognitive disability who have fallen through the gaps in the system and where there is no obvious support. We are often considered the provider of last resort. We also work with people experiencing mental illness and cognitive disability considered at risk to support them to live safely and meaningfully in the community.
We design services and provide individually tailored support, focused on recovery, independence and social inclusion in all our work. Ermha offers support to individuals, including carers, that is guided by their values, strengths and goals. Our services are designed to give our clients more and better opportunities to build the resilience and independence they can use to realise their ambitions.
Ermha was established by a group of passionate carers living in the South-Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, concerned about the lack of support services for their loved ones who were experiencing a mental illness. Over the years ermha has expanded its services to include people living with a cognitive disability, and those with complex and challenging behaviours.
Today ermha is a company limited by guarantee and operates across Victoria with a vision to expand its services across Australia within a decade.
