Centacare Catholic Family Services and KWY Aboriginal Corporation are excited to formally announce our partnership to deliver Your LINC Mental Health Services across Adelaide and select regional areas.

Your LINC, named for its focus on Lived, Identity, Navigate, and Connect, represents a significant step forward in mental health support, blending evidence-based practices with a person-centred approach. Funded by the Department of Health and Wellbeing, the KWY and Centacare partnership will be one of the largest providers of community-based individual psychosocial support in the state.

Through this collaboration, KWY will introduce a dedicated and community-controlled Aboriginal service, centring on cultural ways of healing, engagement, and recovery. This initiative will provide a unique avenue for improving outcomes and wellbeing, reducing risk, and promoting recovery among Aboriginal people, families, and communities.

Craig Rigney, CEO of KWY Aboriginal Corporation, expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “We are proud to partner with Centacare in offering culturally responsive mental health services that honour and respect the diverse needs of our communities.”

Building upon Centacare’s extensive experience delivering individual psychosocial support services, Your LINC will expand its reach in multiple Local Health Networks, with services across greater metropolitan Adelaide, the Barossa, Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula, Kangaroo Island, and the Limestone Coast.

Leanne Haddad, Executive Director of Centacare, highlighted the services’ commitment to providing comprehensive and tailored support, stating, “Your LINC is dedicated to walking alongside individuals on their mental health recovery journey, prioritising their lived experiences and building agency to achieve their own identified goals.”

Your LINC embodies a strength-based approach to mental health support, where our workers walk alongside individuals to reclaim their sense of self and community.

Through collaboration, compassion, and a commitment to cultural responsiveness, Centacare and KWY Aboriginal Corporation aim to contribute to meaningful and sustained outcomes in the lives of those navigating mental health challenges and recovery.
