Support for Day to Day Living in the Community Program

The Day to Day Living in the Community Program (D2DL) recognises that people with a mental illness are often faced with significant challenges when reconnecting to their social and community networks both during and after recovery.

The D2DL Program offers a friendly and positive environment in which those with a mental illness can engage in their choice of "drop in" facilities and support; or activities and groups that encourage socialisation, development of useful life skills, and educational and supportive groups. Staffs at D2DL sites encourage active participation of members in activities and groups and encourage engagement of those who "drop in".

Activities run through some of our sites may include:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Mental Illness information classes
  • Recreational fishing
  • Yoga & Fitness classes
  • Computer programs
  • Cooking classes
  • External outings
  • Workshops
  • Gardening and Lawn Care Program

Please contact your nearest D2DL Centre site (listed below) for more information on the current program of activities and groups on offer.

D2DL Target Group

The D2DL Program aims to support people with a mental illness. It is not necessary to have a formal diagnosis to be eligible to participate in the program. It is important that members are willing to engage in their own recovery journey with the support of this program.
