For many people experiencing panic anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder or an eating disorder, feelings of isolation can be an obstacle to recovery.

It is easy to feel lost and alone, and cut off from the people you love and the person you used to be. This can be made worse when those around you struggle to understand what you are going through.

In a PACE Recovery Support Group, you will meet other people who understand how you are feeling.

The groups aim to foster hope and resilience by allowing participants to share their experiences and skills in order to help one another build a long-term plan for recovery and wellbeing.

The groups are co-facilitated by a PACE Peer Worker who has a lived experience of recovery.

If you are looking to grow your support network, learn strategies to help you in your recovery, or are just keen to come along and sit in on a group, contact PACE today on 8159 1400 or email the team at

The groups are ongoing and new members are welcome. People aged over 16 can attend. There is no charge, and you’re welcome to bring a support person or family member with you.
