About Barrier Breakers Inc
Barrier Breakers advocates for mental health both at the systemic and the personal levels.
At the systemic level we seek to make mental illness and the associated challenges more widely known and understood by the general public, and to help remove the stigma for people living with mental illness. We also lobby governments at all levels to provide more and better services to the mental health sector.
At the personal level, we step in to advocate for individuals with mental illness who are facing a crisis situation. This may be in relation to payments, housing, legal or medical matters, or other situations which they do not feel able to deal with by themselves.
Working in co-operation with other organizations, we have also been instrumental in establishing affordable, safe supported housing in Traralgon, and are hoping to see this model replicated throughout Gippsland.
Our main office is in Traralgon, and we have just opened a new office in Sale. We have active chapters in Sale and Wonthaggi, as well as the main organization, and hope to be opening an office in Wonthaggi in the future.
