How we're supporting people in our Mental Health Services during COVID-19
This page provides information for people in our Mental Health services, and their family members, about how we’re responding to the coronavirus pandemic. We will update it regularly to ensure you remain informed.
Life Without Barriers remains committed to supporting you, and every other person who chooses our Mental Health services during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. As your service provider, we understand just how important it is to have the choice to continue your support, as we adjust to the impact of the virus over the coming months.
So that we can continue to deliver the support you choose, we are making some adjustments to how we do some things in order to protect your health and wellbeing. This means that the staff who support you are practicing strict hygiene and cleaning routines, as well as following advice from the Australian Government around access to facilities and social distancing, where possible.
