Connect and Thrive: New Referral Form Link

CESPHN’s Psychosocial Program, Connect and Thrive, has expanded into a consortium with Flourish Australia and Neami National. Flourish Australia has been delivering the Connect and Thrive program since 2019, and Neami National has been delivering the Continuity of Support psychosocial program in the CESPHN region since the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Please use the new referral form for any future referrals.

The consortium program will continue to provide psychosocial support services to assist people with severe mental illness and reduced psychosocial functional capacity who are not receiving psychosocial supports through the NDIS.

People can access individual support that involves one-on-one psychosocial support with a mental health or peer worker. Additionally, regular group support programs and social activities are available. The service also assists people to test their eligibility for psychosocial supports under the NDIS where it is identified they would benefit from longer-term supports.

Please email Gloria, Mental Health Program Officer, at if you have any questions or issues with anything.
