Stepping Stone is a member based community organisation that successfully addresses the serious impact of mental illness.  We are a community of people dedicated to one anothers recovery. 

Focusing on strengths rather than illness, our members are given the opportunities to rejoin the worlds of friendships, family, important work, employment, education, safe and affordable housing,  social recreation, and access to the services and supports they may individually need.
