Our Allied Health practitioners provide a range of flexible preventative-focused services, including Positive Behaviour Support.

Mental health outreach services help people living with mental illness increase independence and participate in daily community activities, through strengthening daily living skills and self-care strategies.

Our Carer’s Respite service provides support to carers of people living with mental illness, through a range of out of home activities.  Momentum provides access to day-to-day living skills programs, outreach support and social opportunities through our existing Mental Health services.  We have programs to help young people connect, learn life skill, coping skills and resilience, and still simply have some fun.

How to help us

Wills and Bequests

Most of us choose to make a Will at some stage in our lives, especially once we have accumulated possessions that have meaning or value.

Including a gift for your charity of choice is straightforward and can ensure a stronger legacy once your loved ones are provided for. Should you wish to include a gift to Momentum in your Will, our experienced Bequest staff can assist you through the process. Your donation will help us make a real difference in the lives of those most in need in our communities.

We’ve created a Guide to Wills and Bequests and can even help connect you with a local Solicitor.

It’s a simple but important step to ensure your wishes are protected. If you already have a Will, it’s a good idea to review and update it every 3 years or in the event of a change in personal circumstances – such as divorce or inheritance.

To receive a copy of our Guide to Wills and Bequests, contact bequests@mymomentum.org.au or phone 1300 900 091 (extension 252)
