New Mental Health Service Officially Launched

With COVID playing havoc with events these past few months, genU was excited to officially launch our new low intensity mental health service in partnership with the Western Victoria Primary Health Network.

Fifty attendees logged on for a virtual event featuring Western Victoria Primary Health Network CEO Rowena Clift and genU CEO Clare Aimes. Guests also heard from genU staff about the importance of this new service in a challenging COVID landscape via a video question and answer session.

The event closed with a heart-felt sharing of mental health lived experience from mental health advocate, Nicole Scott.

“Everyone should be able to feel safe, supported, connected and loved. There’s so many services out there available, that are free”, Nicole said.

“So it’s really important to reach out… Please remember you are loved, you belong, and you are enough, even when you don’t feel like it.”

We are pleased to share the two video excerpts from the event below:
