Two Ways Mentoring Program
The Two Ways Mentoring Program is peer lead and aims to increase the economic and community participation of individuals living with mental health concerns, by providing:
- Peer mentoring to individuals with psychosocial disability who wish to be employed and who are facing barriers to accessing existing career and work placement pathways.
- Group workshops which provide relevant capacity building and job preparation skills including but not limited to mock interviewing, transport safety, social skills, confidence building, emotional self-regulation tools (e.g., meditation), workers’ rights, and wellbeing activities such as art and music.
- Training to employers & community organisations to assist them to best attract and support individuals with a psychosocial disability, with a focus on destigmatising mental illness within the workforce.
- Mentoring to employers connected to program participants to provide additional support and advocacy as needed/desired by the participant
Two Ways Mentoring Program accepts referrals from those who are legally allowed to work in Australia, who are experiencing a mental health concern and wish to be employed of their own volition but are facing barriers to employment.
