For the last 13 years I have been a psychologist in community mental health. Specialising in the drug, alcohol and mental health treatments. Also working in residential drug and alcohol rehab. While gaining extensive experience working with disadvantaged and homeless clients.
Here on the coast we have first class facilities in my areas. The problems I have been seeing time and time again is that people do not know how to find these resources, or decided which one was appropriate for their situation. I realised there needed to be one site which covered every resource, including descriptions of the facilities, the services they offered, how to contact them and what to expect. Taking away any uncertainty the person may have. Giving them the strength to make the connection to help them connect with the help they need to get their lives back on track.
Thankfully I finally told the right person what my concerns were for the people of this beautiful Gold Coast that is my home. Sharing my dream for how I felt they could be better helped when their lives sadly turn upside down. CareLink GC was soon brought to life. We both believe in the process we are engaging in. I feel passionate that this is going to be a positive project that will grow and grow.
Together we can all help each other live happier and healthier lives.
