Individual planned support uses a collaborative approach in our aim to achieve a wrap-around support for the survivors we work with, their families and supporters.
SAMSN employs clinicians with specialist skills as well as those with lived experience to provide practical support in dealing with government & support agencies and the legal system. SAMSN workers can accompany survivors to interviews, set up appointments, make calls on behalf of survivors, advocate for access to services, assist with navigating government systems and finding ways to resolve difficulties. SAMSN can also make referrals to other agencies.
SAMSN also has a specialist trauma-informed counsellor who can provide short term counselling and assist survivors and their supporters to access longer term counselling if needed. This service can be provided either in-person or over the phone.
