A.T.U.L. (Aid To Useful Living)

 A Charitable organisation providing recovery, training and employment opportunities for people living with a mental health illness.

Mental illness is not a choice but recovery is.

PDLE Inc is a not-for-profit organisation which has roots back to 1961

It encompasses two paths:

atul-logoATUL (Aid to Useful Living) a registered charity and deductible gift recipient – our charitable arm. Our Engagement Partners are small businesses who support the ethos of a pathway to mental health recovery.

PD Leading Enterprises was our personal development program.  Please see the page PD Leading Enterprises Closure.

Our focus is to provide engaging programs of recovery and transition to open employment for people living with mental health illnesses. We focus on developing skills that allow our participants to become community and employment ready.

Our Engagement Partners are small businesses who support the ethos of a pathway to mental health recovery. We supervise and encourage with tasks for our participants that enable and empower them. This allows our participants to gain valuable and varied skills that can be used in a transition to open employment. We assist them to build their resume of skills through a personal centred approach.

Our Personal Development Partners are government and other like minded not-for-profit organisations who support and care for participants recovering from a mental health illness.

We take referrals from any field as long as the participant is living with a mental health illness in accordance with our charter.

All Partners work side by side with us in a team focused to gain the best outcome possible for all our participants.
