b.well

b.well is a community outreach service for people whose mental health and drug and alcohol use affect their desired way of life and wellbeing

The philosophy of the b.well team is to instill hope and understanding and to create a sense of belonging for people with the dual diagnosis of mental health and substance abuse issues.

Our groups have a focus on mental wellness and wellbeing and include a range of approaches. So whether you prefer to learn, be creative, meditate or be active, there will be a program that is right for you.

Peer support groups are demand driven and held at a range of locations across the NSW Northern Rivers Region. People of all ages take part.

For details of current groups and a group that may suit your needs, please contact: intake@buttery.org.au or phone 02 6687 1111.

If groups are not your thing, b.well offers individual counselling for people aged 18 and over. We can also provide support around families and carers. b.well also provides training to other organisations to enhance the services they offer for people experiencing mental health and substance misuse issues.

The symbol for the b.well program is the koru, a Maori symbol signifying renewal. Renewal is key to achieving lasting wellbeing.

Through b.well people can access a range of support services including:

  • Psychoeducation

  • Peer support groups

  • Individual support

  • Activities programs

  • Life skills

  • Early intervention

  • Living healthily programs

The b.well service is free and confidential

“Meeting other people with the same challenges, made me feel that I was not alone.”

PEER-LED SUPPORT GROUP FOR VOICE HEARERS

The term “hearing voices” covers a range of experiences referred to as “hallucinations.” Hearing Voices Support Groups promote self-empowerment, acceptance and provide information.

A Hearing Voices Support Group meets on the first Friday of each month in Mullumbimby

Attendance is free of charge.

For more information please phone The Buttery during business hours 02 6687 1111
