Out Doors Inc

Challenging Approaches to Better Mental Health

Out Doors Inc. (Out Doors) is a the only not-for-profit organisation that delivers outdoor adventure and recreation programs state-wide for people at risk or living with poor mental health.  Using outdoor education, with an emphasis on action, challenge and risk-taking, we deliver programs such as rafting, rock climbing and surfing, and creative programs like bush art & music as a means of providing rehabilitation, skill development and integration in the community. 

Our programs support participants to live independently, keep physically and mentally active and develop formal and informal social relationships using the medium of the natural environment.  These programs support our view that people learn best by ‘doing’ and focus on participant's ability rather than illness or disability.

So why do we do this...?  Because our programs work. 

In the last 7 years, Out Doors has delivered programs to over 7000 people who are vulnerable and in need of support.

Ongoing surveys and feedback from our participants and referring agencies is that our programs improve people's outlook and feelings of self-esteem and confidence.  These are essential foundations for the process of maintaining wellbeing and assisting with recovery.
