Are you ready for the Blue Mountains?!?

It almost April and you know what that means… BLUE MOUNTAINS MONTH!!

The mental health team are accompanying 5 clients on a short trip to the Katoomba, Blue Mountains!!!

Preparations are in progress and the clients are extremely excited to see the amazing scenery and visit many of the interesting sites!

It is an incredible opportunity for clients to experience a holiday which they would not be able to experience on a regular basis. This will help the development and improvement of social interaction and relationship building.

Pols and Kroon (2007) stated that “These trips support goals that contribute in important ways toward reaching psychiatric rehabilitation goals.” The trips helped travellers establish and maintain social relationships, and this is something we hope to achieve!
