CAN is a peer support organisation based in Sydney. Our peer support workers have a lived experience of mental illness, or drug and alcohol misuse, or gambling with co-existing mental health issues.
This is why we stand out from other services. CAN still requires its paid staff to have industry relevant qualifications; but the positions are targeted and identified and this means, we are comfortable about who we are. We have confidence, experience and industry recognised credentials.
The program we offer is Hospital to Home. Our Hospital to Home program offers you support during your first 28 days after discharge.
We are not advice-givers, crisis support providers, or a counselling service. If you require emergency support we encourage you to call 000 or contact your nearest Mental Health Service.
