Bay of Isles Community Outreach
Registered NDIS provider
Bay of Isles Community Outreach (BOICO) is a registered NDIS provider. We act as advocates for our clients and carers, enabling easier access all the services available to them under the NDIS, locally in the region, and also online. BOICO is a Not for Profit Organisation that also provides recovery-focused, community managed mental health and wellbeing services for people affected by mental illness, their carers and families.
At BOICO, we offer a range of programs that involve our clients, carers and families in activities designed to encourage good mental health so they are able to cope with challenges, work productively and make the most of their potential, allowing them to play a part in their roles within their family, friends and community. Our programs encourage the foundations of Mental Wellness – connect, eat well, be active, be mindful and sleep.
Our Mental Health Commission recovery-focussed outreach programs operate with a combination of empathy and respect to a persons’ present life, but also their potential future. By allowing people to be involved in all aspects of their recovery process we encourage participation and offer choice. People have the right to be in the centre of decisions that affect their lives. Empowerment is built through achieving life’s many tasks. We acknowledge the potential in people to have control and authority over their lives.
Our Mental Health Commission recovery-focussed outreach programs extend beyond the Esperance region to include Norseman, Hopetoun and Ravensthorpe. All of the programs at BOICO focus on giving opportunities for inclusion and connection amongst the local community.
