The goal of The Junction is to provide a range of services, experiences and opportunities to give support to people experiencing mental health issues or recovering from mental illness and improve the mental wellbeing of the wider community.

Groups are active in Mount Gambier and Millicent and we recently (after 5 years) stopped our activities in Penola. Lifeboat and the Limestone Coast Meditation Community are associated with the Junction.

At The Junction we promote mental health by encouraging participants (consumers and carers) to take responsibility for their own wellbeing and to take an active role in the day to day operation and its activities (empowerment and ownership) together with the volunteers, professionals and guest speakers/facilitators.

We do this by providing a safe and supportive environment which foster attendees’ independence, self-worth, confidence, and self-esteem through the activities we organise.

The Junction is a low cost, easy accessible service that provides targeted programs which develop coping skills and potential in people with mental health issues and interaction in the community, a safe environment for learning and developing friendships with like-minded people.

As we are a non-government and non-funded volunteer service we rely on local, state and federal funds and donations to support our activities and the management.

The Junction is based in Mount Gambier and Millicent

We are supported by Country Health SA, other government and community organisations, service clubs, businesses  and individuals with an interest in support of people with mental health issues.
