Welcome to Prahran Mission
"Every person has the right to a decent life"
The Intake and Assessment Service will improve access to information and referrals for mental health community support services.
What does Intake and Assessment do?
The new Mental Health Community Support Service (MHCSS) Intake and Assessment Service will provide information and referrals for people seeking mental health support.
The service will:
• Screen and determine eligibility to receive support
• Prioritise referrals
• Refer eligible people to support services for a comprehensive intake assessment
• Provide screening information to support services to avoid need for repeating information
• Follow up referrals to make sure people are getting access to the services they need
• Provide self-management information and follow-up contact with people on the needs register
• Provide general mental health information and facilitate referrals to other services as needed
• Convene the Bed-Based Selection Panel in each catchment for Youth/Adult Residential Rehabilitation and Supported Accommodation

Back on Trak CD for Sale
Back on Trak features seven tracks of original music and lyrics by Prahran Mission participants who have developed their craft over the last 12 months. The title Back on Trak was jointly selected by both participants and Trak Live Lounge to show how music has enabled them to get back on track and move forward with their lives. The CD Back on Trak is now available for $20 from the Mission Goodwill Shops in Chapel St and Dandenong, or at level 3 reception at 211 Chapel Street. Watch this space for a short film about the project, coming very soon!
Hearing voices is a common human experience.
Prahran Mission's innovative consumer-led program supports people who hear voices, their support and clinical workers, and families, friends and carers.
In 2012 Voices Vic won a Gold Achievement Award at The Mental Health Services (TheMHS) Conference, and the impact of our work continues to offer hope and recovery to people across Victoria.
Do you hear voices?
You are not alone.
We help set-up peer support groups for voice hearers, deliver talks and information sessions about the voice hearing experience, and run training about recovery from voices. We also run individual peer support in our Voice Exchange program.
Our work is open to voice hearers, mental health professionals, and family, friends and carers of voice hearers.
We work with the hearing voices approach, which is informed by the wisdom of people who have recovered. We don’t try to get rid of voices, but instead work to help people make sense of them and eventually change the relationship with the voices.
