Disability and Mental Health ages 16+ Support Coordination

Ermha

Ermha exists to ensure that People experiencing mental illness and cognitive disability and their carers can thrive in and become part of the community.

We choose to work with people experiencing mental illness and cognitive disability who have fallen through the gaps in the system and where there is no obvious support. We are often considered the provider of last resort. We also work with people experiencing mental illness and cognitive disability considered at risk to support them to live safely and meaningfully in the community.

We design services and provide individually tailored support, focused on recovery, independence and social inclusion in all our work. Ermha offers support to individuals, including carers, that is guided by their values, strengths and goals. Our services are designed to give our clients more and better opportunities to build the resilience and independence they can use to realise their ambitions.
