Lismore Lantern Parade

Interrelate staff, with their family and friends, helped light up Lismore’s sky in the Lismore Lantern Parade on Saturday, 25 June 2016. Interrelate paraded The Wild Things, characters from the well-known children’s book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. The lanterns bring much joy and excitement to over 20,000 children and families in Lismore each year and Interrelate was proud to be part of the event.

Dirty Laundry Day

Interrelate was part of the Domestic Violence Committee which coordinated the Dirty Laundry Day installation at the North Coast National Show in Lismore. The installation conveyed the message that family violence occurs in the home, behind the picket fence. The aim was to raise community awareness of domestic violence and provide information to the community on where to get support.
A similar Dirty Laundry Day installation will be provided at Lismore Shopping Square during the 16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence.

Personal Helpers and Mentors Service

The Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) program is a mental health outreach support service for people aged 16 years and over whose lives are severely affected by mental illness. Interrelate operates this service in the Ballina, Richmond Valley and Kyogle LGAs.

The PHaMs service supports people experiencing the effects of mental illness by assisting them in their own recovery and in reconnecting with their local community.

The PHaMs service will help participants to:

  • become involved in social or community activities or groups
  • cope better with everyday tasks like utilising public transport and budgeting
  • access community services like health, housing or family support
  • set and achieve their own recovery goals to improve their life.

PHaMs is a free service and participants can self-refer. Participants do not need a formal clinical diagnosis to access the service.

For more information on the PHaMs service contact Fleur on 1300 130 966.
