Connections is a not-for-profit community service organisation that provides individual support, training, programs and advocacy in the support of mental health and wellbeing. Connections has been delivering service in the Caboolture, and surrounding suburbs, since 2003. Connections vision is to Improve Mental Health in the Community and achieves this via our mission of providing relevant evidence-based learning and life skill development programs to facilitate recovery. Connections works with people within the principles of Recovery and in a trauma informed framework to reach their goals and live a life that has meaning to them.
Connections also understands and values the need for activities, information, workshops and intervention and prevention strategies to be delivered within the community that assists people to understand and manage their own mental health and wellbeing. This year Connections expanded its services by opening a Training and Wellness Centre in King Street, Caboolture. This centre is designed to provide an opportunity for all community members to access training and programs that will; build competency and knowledge in managing the impacts of mental ill health, building skills and capacity within the human services sector and addressing the need for holistic support.
Connections is currently refunded by the Dept. Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services to provide one on one supports. Connections also delivers the NDIS Participant Readiness Initiative assisting to prepare people with a psycho-social disability for the NDIS. Complimentary to this Connections is delivering Community Awareness and Participant Readiness in partnership with the NDIA in the LGA’s of Mackay, Isaac and the Whitsundays. Connections has developed its own fee for service training called NDIS Better Prepared which is tailored to organisational needs.
