At this year’s Hunter Business Awards for Excellence, ProCare had the esteemed honour of taking out first place in the Social Enterprise category. The award, announced at a gala ceremony on Friday 23 August, was presented to ProCare due to an innovative approach to providing accessible mental health services to the Hunter community.


At the center of ProCare’s community-focused model is the Next Step Incubator Program which is designed to deliver increased availability of mental health professionals to the community at an affordable cost, when it is most needed.  Next Step is a partnership between ProCare and Hunter New England Health that taps into the stream of mental health professionals cultivated through Hunter New England Health’s fellowship program to increase the number of practitioners operating in the Newcastle Community.  VIEW ARTICLE
