Receiving a visit – what can you expect?

If you live in one of the areas mentioned above, you may receive a visit from one of our People Connectors. Our People Connectors are trained in linking members of the community with relevant support services. 

Our team members may ask whether you or anyone in your household struggles with mental health issues, or suffers from poor emotional wellbeing. These questions are not meant to be invasive, but rather help us suggest services that may be beneficial to you. Approximately 75% of Australians with a mental illness do not receive adequate support. The goal of the ACDC project is to bring this number down by supplying people with helpful and relevant information.
