With support from the BHP Vital Resource fund, Ungooroo Aboriginal Corporation’s psychology services are addressing issues of social isolation, home confinement, economic uncertainty and other factors affecting our mental well-being. Challenges with mental health and well-being are not new but are certainly being compounded by the uncertainty that the COVID-19 virus brings. Please be aware that an eligibility criteria applies to access this service.

For referral to our psychology services under the NDIS, please call 6571 5111 and ask to speak with a member of Ungooroo’s NDIS Team (or email the team at ndis@ungooroo.com.au).
