Get help when and where you need it

Community outreach support can be provided to you in your home and the community to help you to achieve goals related to your mental health and wellbeing. At breakthru we work with you to assist with your growth and independence on your way to mental health recovery.

 

What is Community Outreach Support?

Community Outreach Support is a treatment option where a professional breakthru staff member will meet you in your home, in the community or any other place you feel comfortable. It is a flexible option and great for people who may have difficulty reaching a breakthru office.

Community Outreach Support assists people with a psychosocial disability to undertake daily living activities, access and participate in their community, and strengthen their personal relationships.
