PIR funded Leanne McMurtrie to consult and counsel on the east coast of Tasmania, where there has been a significant gap in services for people with severe and persistent mental illness and complex needs.
A fortnightly service at Bicheno has been seeing a broad range of individuals with mental health issues being a common theme. People are seeking to improve their wellness and manage their issues more effectively. Counselling themes include trauma, relationship issues and relationship breakdown, isolation, communication and conflict resolution issues, self esteem and skill development.
People wishing to access the service should contact Leanne at firstname.lastname@example.org
