Mental Health

Empowered Community Services prides itself on being a knowledgeable provider when it comes to working with Mental Health Participants under the NDIS. Empowered has worked with numerous organisations that specialise in Mental Health across Newcastle and the Lake Macquarie Area. Empowered has a Statement of Cooperation (Link below) with Hunter New England Health, which allows us to work directly with Allied Health Professionals across the region. 

Empowered employ numerous staff with varying backgrounds in Mental Health and Psychology. Empowered also employ a Mental Health First Aid Instructor and we encourage all staff to complete their Mental Health First Aid training in-house. 

Empowered attempts to raise awareness within our organisation by sending out weekly emails to all staff informing them about different Mental Health topics such as Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Schizophrenia. All information is then stored on our Customer Reference Manager, so staff are able to look up the information when necessary. 

Empowered continues to keep up to date with industry standards to ensure that we are providing the best possible support to our participants.
