MHAPS provides a range of comprehensive programmes plus a series of individual single-subject workshops. These small group events are designed to improve people’s understanding of mental health and addictions. As a person becomes more aware of their own reactions to stress and trauma these programmes assist them to develop effective recovery and wellbeing strategies.


RecoveryWorks is a comprehensive workshop-based programme for people who experience moderate to high levels of anxiety.

The programme has a strong track record in fostering change and assisting people to lead the life they want rather than the life that anxiety leaves them with.

There are limited places on each programme. It can be accessed through an individual meeting with a MHAPS peer support worker, where the emphasis is on helping a person to determine if this is the right programme for them and the right time for them to do it.

To express interest in this programme please come into our offices anytime between 10:00am and 1:30pm Monday to Friday for an individual FIRST STEP meeting. Each day there is a duty person who can meet with you and discuss our programmes and services and suggest whatever of them may appear suitable to your circumstances.
