The Mind Movement Program provides evidenced-informed psychological strategies to support individuals experiencing poor wellbeing, disability or work disengagement associated with a physical or psychological injury. The program was awarded ABA 100 Winner for Innovation in Service Delivery (2018).

Reducing Barriers

Mind Movement aims to reduce the psychological and psychosocial factors which can significantly influence an individual’s recovery. Our team of allied health professionals understand the importance of treatment alignment – so we align goals with the individual, their GP and other treatment providers to promote treatment integration.

Personalised Support

We guide our clients through identifying how their emotions, behaviours, body and thought patterns are interconnected and can influence their health outcomes. Our psychologists are experienced in assisting individuals to move from a low level of functioning, through to thinking about reinvesting in their lives and preparing for employment – to taking the actions required to return to work.

We’re highly skilled in the area of assisting individuals with chronic pain and illness with injury acceptance, providing high quality treatment within various schemes and systems. 

Where appropriate, Mind Movement acts as a conduit, connecting individuals to appropriate support systems and complimentary treatments, such as exercise physiology or supportive community programs. Such recommendations may assist a client with active application of psychological strategies and overcome the complexity of barriers which may be impacting their recovery.

Program participants report improvements to their overall wellbeing, including increased general activity levels, social engagement and improvements to their mood. A recent Mind Movement pilot study demonstrated significant improvement in pre and post program scores across measures of depression, anxiety, stress and wellbeing.

The program draws upon Altius Group’s expertise, incorporating:

        • Evidence that exercise is just as effective as antidepressants in treating mild to moderate depression.
        • Support to apply wellbeing goals in the community.
        • Best practice for persistent pain related presentations with multi-disciplinary interventions.
Mind Movement Provides:
        • Psychoeducation so that clients can understand and learn strategies to cope with, accept or minimise the impact of their injury or illness.
        • Psychological therapy to assist individuals with emotional challenges, grief and mood changes including cognitive interventions to promote healthy mood and thinking in the context of the illness or injury.
        • Health coaching to promote behavioural activation/ values-based goal setting and good health choices to improve functioning, engagement in life and wellbeing.
        • Tools to build confidence and self-esteem.
        • Support to set goals to overcome obstacles.
        • Development of interpersonal and communication skills to improve relationships.
        • Individualised help to support clients to regain control of their life.
        • A collaborative and strategic approach with case conferencing to assist in treatment alignment and coordination.
