We're Opening Soon in Northern Adelaide

We're Opening Soon in Northern Adelaide

Skylight Mental Health has been providing community-based mental health services in Adelaide's northern suburbs for more than 20 years.

Our staff have delivered individual supports, group supports, activity services, counselling, therapeutic services and more, all of which have been delivered within the local area.

We are proud to announce that Skylight Mental Health is launching a new Northern Adelaide office to significantly extend our services and increase our connection with the people in the northern suburbs.

The new site will be up and running in 2021, offering a suite of services with a focus on NDIS participants looking for a provider who understands the unique challenges in mental health.

Our vision and our approach "See Mental Health Differently" means that we don't focus on a diagnosis or a label, but we work within a recovery-based framework, where we highlight each person's potential and goals.

Almost 80% of Skylight Mental Health's staff identify as having a direct lived experience of mental health concerns or as a carer of someone with a mental health concern and we are proud to show our commitment to a lived experience model of service.

We have started recruiting to grow our Northern team with roles, including Customer Relations Team members and Support Workers. We expect that this team will grow rapidly as we extend our commitment to the region.

We are encouraging people who want to work with a like-minded organisation to "See Your Career Differently". Perhaps it's time for a change, and maybe working for a values-based organisation like Skylight Mental Health will open new doors for you?

If you are looking for a rewarding career or looking for quality services, we look forward to meeting you soon.

Strategies for Maintaining Mental Health During Isolation

b2ap3_large_LETSS-Blog

It is well known that boredom can contribute to feelings of depression, anxiety and loneliness. Our COVID-19 Peer Support Line staff have come up with 5 strategies that may help you to cope should you need to isolate. 

Maintain a Routine
As much as possible, maintain a routine each day. Shower when you usually would, and eat when you usually would. Most importantly, get dressed out of your pyjamas every day! If you get into proper clothes, you feel like you're day has started and that you have important things to do, and you do have important things to do.

Achieve Something Everyday
No matter what the task, set yourself something to achieve every day. It might be doing the dishes, cleaning out a cupboard, or calling a friend. A sense of achievement helps us to feel like we are doing something meaningful. Keep doing meaningful activities every day and it won't feel like a waste of time!

Write About Your Experience
Writing about what has been going on, can help us to feel like we are talking to someone and sharing our experiences with someone. You might write a daily journal of how you're feeling or what tasks you did, or you might even post an online blog telling the world about how you're going! You might even find other journals or blogs to read of people going through the same thing. When we find others having a similar experience, it helps us feel less alone.

Keep Connected Socially
This one is especially important if you are at home on your own. Organise Skype calls with friends and family, find a Facebook group to follow that lifts your spirits, create a Whatsapp or messenger group to check on each other or participate in an online forum or discussion board. The more ways that you can communicate the better! Play knocking games on the wall with your neighbours! Get creative.

Reach Out For Support
Ultimately, it's going to be a difficult time for anyone and it's important to reach out for support if you need it. If you're feeling suicidal and really not coping, call Mental Health Triage or Emergency. If you're feeling safe but you are in distress and need to talk things through, call LETSS and chat with our peer workers. Let's all band together and get through this!!!
