We know we can’t do it alone, and we can’t be everywhere, every time. That is why we have industry partners to work alongside us. Together we draw on each other’s strengths and complement each other, with the aim of providing the best holistic care. Mental illness and mental health is a multi-domain, multi-faceted affair, so it only makes sense that we partner up with these folks. We are blessed to live in such a well-resourced country, and if we look hard enough we’ll find something that suits your needs.
New Horizons is an NGO that provides support in numerous areas, including mental health, social services, housing, daily living, cultural & spiritual wellbeing, education and employment.
