Community Assistance Network

The Community Assistance Network (CAN) of the Richmond Fellowship of the ACT Inc. is a mental health recovery program, funded by the ACT Dept of Health, Mental Health. We offer services to people aged 16 to 65 years who are affected by a mental illness and who wish to live in the community. People who join our program are encouraged and supported to become active participants by taking responsibility for their recovery plans. Our staff team works to ACT Mental Health Recovery Principles and in close partnership with ACT Mental Health and other agencies to ensure we can assist people to access the services that best suit their needs.


CAN provides:

  • Transitional group house accommodation with a structured program for people who wish to learn skills that will enable them to live independently
  • Outreach support for people who live in their own accommodation
  • An after hours social program for people who want to connect with others and enjoy what our community has to offer
  • Counselling for families of people with a mental illness – Family Issues Team
