Rivers Program

The Rivers Program (Rivers) is a community-based initiative that supports people with mental health or substance abuse issues. 

We recognise the unique challenges many people face when accessing mental health support, and tailor our activities to different communities across Perth. Within the Rivers program of activities, you will find safe, culturally sensitive and inclusive environments, allowing you to participate confidently in a range of group activities. 

Rivers is a partnership between Rise, Multicultural Services Centre of WA (MSCWA) and Wungening Aboriginal Corporation.
