Why do we do what we do?

OSHI was born out of necessity. Research by us led to the foundation and creation of the OSHI movement. OSHI is an ever-expanding collective of individuals who have overcome adversity and converted calamity and disaster into triumph and victory.

We exist because we have to and we often ask ourselves these questions:

  • If not us, then who?
  • If not now, then when?

OSHI seeks to re-address the balance in society in challenging the status quo of the treatment, addiction and recovery sector as well as mental health services in dual diagnosis.
OSHI is made up entirely from people with lived experience and genuine deep rooted desire to effect change. We believe that “transformed people, transform people!

In short; we’re a heart centred organisation and place the well-being of those we serve at the core of everything we do.
