The team at ermha365

This week, GET REAL asks a very practical question: 

Where do you go to get help for your mental health – particularly if it is something you’ve struggled with even before COVID-19, or you have an underlying mental health condition, or the advice that’s available online, and to everyone, just doesn’t seem to make a difference for you?

On this episode, guests include: 

  • Karenza Louis-Smith, CEO of ermha365 and Board Member of Mental Health Victoria; 
  • Lynne and Cassie, Practice Leaders in ermha365’s Psychosocial Support Program, PSS; and
  • Shandya and Shyleen, a consumer and PSS support worker, talking about how getting support through PSS has helped Shandya to manage her mental health issues and achieve her goals.

The PSS program provides mental health support across a wide catchment area in South Eastern Melbourne that stretches from St Kilda to Sorrento to Bunyip, including the major population hubs of Clayton, Dandenong, Moorabbin, Caulfield, Cranbourne, Frankston and Pakenham.
