Partners Toward Wellbeing is a free, confidential and voluntary program delivered by Mission Australia in partnership with Sonder.
The program helps people to address the practical, physical, social and emotional issues that often accompany living with both mental health and alcohol and/or other drug use concerns.
We provide; peer support, alcohol and other drugs counselling, and psychological support to address both mental health and alcohol and/or other drug use concerns.
We can also provide care coordination to ensure your needs are addressed by the most appropriate services in the community.
The relationship between alcohol and other drugs and mental health
Alcohol and other drugs can affect your mental health, leading to what is known as comorbidity.
It can be a challenge to receive the proper care to address both addiction and mental health. We are fully trained in the area of alcohol and other drugs and mental health to ensure you receive the best care for your wellbeing goals.
