Rosie Batty visits MHACA

We were very pleased to host Rosie Batty, domestic violence campaigner and the 2015 Australian of the Year, on Tuesday 8 November. Participants and staff were thrilled to hear Rosie speak and draw parallels with our own work to support victims of domestic violence.

“Personal safety is vital to good mental health” according to our CEO Sabine Wedemeyer.  A person whose physical safety is constantly under threat is more likely to experience a range of mental health issues including depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, substance abuse and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

MHACA’s case managers ensure that participants who experience domestic violence are advocated for and supported, and maintain strong relationships with local domestic violence, mental health and legal service providers to achieve this.

Our friendly staff provide support and activities for people with a mental illness, including linking them in with other services. We also support families who have lost someone to suicide, and help people living with mental illness in Alice Springs to sustain their tenancies.

If you would like more information, contact MHACA on 8950 4600.  If you require immediate crisis support, contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 OR Suicide Call Back Service 1300 659 467.
