Aftercare is the lead agency for the latest the ‘LikeMind’ hub now open in the Western NSW city of Orange. The Western NSW Local Health District is our principle partner and have permanently co-located a brand new acute and continuing care team onsite.
LikeMind is an innovative model of holistic care via integrated services for people with mental illness across four core streams: mental health, drug and alcohol, physical health, and social needs such as linkages to employment, vocational training and housing. The one centre provides triage, assessment, treatment, care coordination and discharge planning by a consortium of government and non-government providers.
Service Manager of LikeMind Orange, Sharon Jones commented “the beauty of LikeMind is anyone can access the holistic health services simply by walking into the centre. You don’t need a referral. Every day new people are walking in off the street and accessing a variety of services”
Aftercare is truly proud to be able to be to support this thriving community. Early next year Aftercare will open another LikeMind service in Wagga Wagga. Watch this space.
