Glady has been working in the mental health sector for 12 years. During this time she worked in residential, outreach and group services within non profit community organisations.
She also have lived experience of mental health issues, both as a carer and as someone who has experienced the many challenges of recovery.
Glady started Glady and Co because of the lack of support being provided through NDIS in the Eastern suburbs and the lack of mental health specific services available that fully support staff who identify having lived experience.
At Glady and Co we believe that having a strong community and safe space without stigma is the most important part of recovery. That awareness and full understanding comes from life experience and the ability to see the strength that comes from the recovery journey.
The Glady and Co team are an amazing group of experienced mental health workers that are willing to share their experience of life and mental health recovery.
They embody empowerment, hope and strength. They actively reduce stigma by being open to the community and our participants about mental health issues.
Glady and Co are creating support that people need to live full and happy lives. We understand that quality of life is the most important aspect of recovery and that each day brings a different set of challenges to our participants. We are fully consumer led, we listen to what our participants want and endeavor to create it.
