SVA Consulting and mental health
At SVA we recognise that mental health plays a vital role in boosting social inclusion and reducing disadvantage in Australia. It is inextricably linked to good outcomes in education, employment, housing, and culture. Our vision is that everyone in Australia has access to the support they need to sustain positive mental health and recover quickly from crisis or ill health.
SVA Consulting brings a deep understanding and strong track record within the mental health sector. We have supported a diverse range of organisations across the prevention, early intervention, crisis support and recovery spectrum, in a range of strategy, program design, outcomes management, evaluation and collaboration projects.
Further, SVA’s impact investing team has contributed to improving mental health outcomes through initiatives such as the Resolve Social Benefit Bond and investments in a range of innovative social enterprises such as Vanguard Laundry Services, Ability Enterprises and Christie Centre. Over many years our Venture Philanthropy team has proudly supported a range of organisations that are achieving positive mental health outcomes such as AIME, Backtrack, Wings to Fly, Mimi’s House and Dismantle.
Lifeline Australia engaged SVA to support the design and development of a pilot crisis support service that utilises text messaging.
SVA worked with Flourish Australia to understand the value of their Peer Operated Service and develop an outcomes dashboard.
