About Us

The Artius Foundation was formed in July 2015 to help people with a disability, mental health illness, Indigenous Australians or disadvantaged groups such as the unemployed to reach their potential. We do this through providing health services, counselling and employment and training services.

The Artius Foundation assists:

  • People with a disability unable to work to their full capacity
  • People with moderate to severe mental health illness
  • Indigenous Australians that are disadvantaged through unemployment disability or illness
  • Unemployed youth

The Artius Foundation provides mental health and counselling services to people unable to access or afford Medicare gap payments or private fees. These services are delivered by Psychologists and other Mental Health providers.

We also provide vocational training and support to assist people to find and maintain employment. Services offered include:

  • Job preparation
  • Employability skills training
  • Foundational skills training
  • Job searching
  • Work trials
  • Job placement
  • Post placement support to assist job retention

The Artius Foundation does not charge any fees for its services. Funding is provided by State and Federal Government agencies.
