Residential services for mental health

Residential services provide people with a mental illness a place to live for short, medium or long-term stays. The accommodation may also include support services for daily living that promote recovery.

To access these services an individual can be referred by a General Practitioner, a private psychiatrist or public mental health service.

Support for living in the community

These services provide support to individuals living with a mental illness to allow them to remain in their community.

These services generally require a referral from a General Practitioner, a private psychiatrist or public mental health service. We recommend you check with the service you’re interested in to make sure.

 

* These services are not funded by the Mental Health Commission.
