JOC is dedicated to supporting individuals with mental illness on their recovery journey, by assisting them to discover and develop a meaningful life.
JOC’s Wellness and Recovery service is person-centred and provides flexible mobile and community-based support services for clients who are living independently, but not necessarily alone, in their community.
A major objective of JOC’s Wellness & Recovery service is to support the people we work with to achieve their life goals and personal outcomes, and assist with developing safeguards for individuals if necessary.
We recognise the importance of people who experience mental illness having the opportunity to build and sustain personal mental health and wellbeing, optimism for the future, relationships with family and friends, a good home in the community, and a stable source of income. We work together with individuals to ensure that opportunities for choice and control are an integral part of their everyday lives.
JOC is passionate about our client’s recovery and their right to the best possible care. We are committed to excellence and tailor our staff training requirements to meet best practice to ensure we can consistently deliver outcomes that meet or exceed client expectations. Active partnerships are established with other community agencies and mental health services to ensure effective coordination to meet clients’ needs.
JOC’s Wellbeing and Recovery services are provided to individuals, or delivered as structured groups.

Client Pathway through JOC’s Wellness and Recovery service
The client pathway through our Wellness and Recovery service is driven by the needs of the individual client. Clients have the assistance of a Key Worker throughout their relationship with the service. Where the client chooses, their nominated Recovery Partners (such as family, carers, community and clinical supports) are included. Ongoing client and carer consultation is an integral part of the pathway.
JOC Wellness & Recovery services are for individuals living with mental illness who require support in relation to community living, education, employment, and their wellbeing.
Entry to the service is initiated by referral. The referral form is to be completed by a GP or Mental Health Professional.
Meditation is the guided practice of quiet sitting in a comfortable up right position with attention to slowing down breathing, relaxing and release of the body tension. Calming the mind helps greater clarity to emerge and encourages self-awareness. Meditation is a great tool to develop physical and mental wellbeing. It is an excellent holistic approach to managing stress and anxiety.
In order to have a healthy mind it is imperative to have a healthy body. It is vital to enmesh the two in order to function as well as possible. During this time there is a dedicated Personal Trainer available to participants.
There can be many benefits to those who write regularly as they share their thoughts with a piece of paper. One of the biggest benefits is that it brings closure,
an appreciation of the little things and begins to close down our negative judgements of self.
JOC is currently funded entirely by the Mental Health Commission and by the generosity of grants from Lotterywest. Unfortunately, programs that we offer are limited by the funding we receive.
Donations will be used to support or expand existing programs, and develop new initiatives for our members. All programs delivered by JOC aim to improve the mental health, social wellbeing and overall quality of life of adults living with a diagnosed mental illness.
We respectfully acknowledge that we work on Aboriginal land and pay our respects to community members and elders, past and present.
