    How YMCA Brightside Works


    New participants are accepted through self-referral, referral from a carer or referral from a
    doctor, social worker, psychiatrist, psychologist or other mental health professional.

    confirmation from their doctor, mental health professional or social worker to ensure
    we are providing the best possible care and the right program for each individual.
    The referral form at the back of this brochure can be faxed or emailed to YMCA NSW or
    your local Y Brightside location.

    We’ll call you

    Once the form is received, a Brightside program leader will contact the referrer to discuss
    the program in detail and confirm it will be of benefit to the patient.
    If we can help, the program leader will arrange the first meeting and introduction to the Y for
    the participant and continue to work with the referrer to provide complete support.

    consultation to determine the best personalised exercise program for the participant.

    their progress. The program can be adapted as required.
    Additionally, this contact will allow for more guided sessions on specific equipment, an
    opportunity to learn new exercise techniques and, importantly, assistance in maintaining

    Program review

    program and explore options to continue exercising at the Y. The program leader will also
    ask participants to complete a brief questionnaire to be shared with the referring health
