About Burnside HASP
Burnside HASP is a 24/7 supported accommodation service for people living with significant psychosocial disability and mental health and wellbeing concerns. The service is managed by Mind Australia with a clinical partnership with Eastern Community Mental Health. The program supports up to 20 people at any time, with flexible support hours dependent on each person's needs.
Burnside HASP gives residents safe, secure and affordable housing with security of tenure. Residents are provided with their own fully equipped, self-contained unit, therefore providing them with the opportunity to further enhance their independent living skills in preparation for eventual return to community living.
The housing is linked with individualised support services which reflect recovery principles within a rehabilitation framework.

Support focuses primarily on the following:

- Access to education, volunteering and employment
