Clients accessing the wider community.
It is vital that clients have regular access to the wider community. Our Community Links Program assuits clients to the wider community. This can can be specific community access outings and leisure outings, usually associated with a discharge plan which also invloves ensuring clients are familiar with theri area of discharege, including familarising themselves with relevant services.
"It's important to develop community links that broaden clients' horizons. Links with such partners promote re-integration into the wider community and help de-stigmatise mental illness."
