hi i need some help please...



i would like to get some assistance with financing...i have mental health...and can't seem to find a proper job or find the right job for me...


what's in the australian newspaper these days? with jobs or something similar to centrelink?


is there another way to get cash weekly as same as a casual job? that can compromise with centrelink?


if anyone can answer to this question would be great.

Hi @aliciawearie07,


I'm not sure if we can direct you to specific job opportunities but peers here can definitely help and support you and your wellbeing while you search. Maybe you could tell us a bit more about your situation? You have posted in the carers side of the forum - would you like to share a bit of your experience in caring for a loved one with ill mental health?

There are plenty of job agencies that help people with mental illness. Good on yu for having a go. They help with other things as well like counselling to help you succeed in the role.

For urgent assistance, call:
