Occupational Therapist - Mental Health
Sunshine Coast

Occupational Therapists with experience in mental health conditions.

Heroes Allied Health Occupational Therapists are located on the Sunshine Coast and provide a caring and personalised approach to assist clients with psychosocial disabilities or mental health challenges. 

Our Occupational Therapists who have a special interest in mental health believe that a person’s sense of self and wellbeing is influenced by the things they do that are important and meaningful to them. 

They work alongside their clients to restore their sense of purpose and wellbeing through participation in activities or tasks that are meaningful and important to them such as self-care, education, work and leisure or social activities.

We can help you make a plan to return to your everyday activities.

Through a range of assessments, Heroes Allied Health Occupational Therapists develop an understanding of their clients’ needs and goals and identify the issues or obstacles preventing them from participating in their everyday activities.

Our Occupational Therapists focus on your mental health and wellbeing

Heroes Allied Health Occupational Therapists assist with a range of therapies, interventions and evidence-based services to support individuals to live with improved independence, health and wellbeing by either enhancing their personal skills, modifying the environment or adjusting the activities.

  • Self-care or personal-care skills
  • Domestic and household management

Our Occupational Therapists can assess the needs and supports required for an individual’s living arrangements and make recommendations for Supported Independent Living (SIL) or Individualised Living Options (ILO).
