A strategic partnership has commenced between Jewish House and MindSkiller – a new digital mental health education, training and innovation platform that recently launched in Australia.
MindSkiller is well positioned to make an impact in improving how Australians receive mental health care, including accessing support and resources, while also improving their mental health literacy.
Founded by Dr Gary Galambos, psychiatrist and medical director of Uspace at St Vincent’s Private Hospital Sydney, MindSkiller aims to fill gaps in the mental health system through its person-centred model that connects service providers, patients and organisations supporting the mental health of their employees.
Jewish House CEO Rabbi Mendel Kastel has a 12-year association with Uspace, who provide inpatient, day patient and outpatient mental health care to young adults with mental disorders.
Rabbi Kastel, who attended MindSkiller’s public launch event at the Sydney Theatre Company, said, “We at Jewish House are very excited to partner with MindSkiller and we have been working with Gary for many years. MindSkiller’s new platform will be a game changer for our clients, their families and our workers, as it ties in nicely with our approach and provides the ability to be of great support, beyond direct engagement.”
As a MindSkiller partner, Jewish House will be listed on its registry, that provides users with a carefully curated list of mental health tools, interventions and services.
As part of the partnership, Jewish House is developing an app for its clients, to use to provide consent about their personal welfare choice.
The app will also be able to be listed in the MindSkiller registry, when it is released.
