If you or someone you know is struggling with Anxiety or Panic Attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or an Eating Disorder…


PACE can help!



The PACE service provides a range of recovery services for people living with these issues, and those who support them in South Australia.


Most of the PACE team are peer workers, which means they have experienced panic anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder or an eating disorder themselves, so they understand how difficult it can be, and they are living proof that recovery is possible.
