Who is it for?

Yakkalla Recreation Program is for people who have been diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder.

The program works on a referral process. For more information talk to your health worker or call Yakkalla staff for more details. Once completing a referral, consumers can access a variety of activities that the program has to offer. Central Coast ARAFMI aims to provide opportunities to help consumers develop social and interpersonal skills, make new friends, reduce isolation, fear and anxiety, as well as providing a means of respite for carers.

Women's Group

Women's Group meets weekly and aims to provide a recreational based program and includes self awareness and personal development. This group is for women in the local community who have experienced mental health issues and wish to expand their social networks.

Monthly Recreation Calendar

Each month a Yakkalla Recreation Program is mailed out consumers who have registered with the service. The calendar includes the activities for each day; beginning/ leaving and finishing/returning times; what to bring and cost if any. If the weather is not suitable for any activity an alternative activity will be organised. For some activities bookings have limited seating, so it is advised to book ahead to ensure you get a seat on these trips.
