Why choose Mind for Housing with support services?
We have been providing mental health and wellbeing support to people, and their families, friends and carers, for more than 45 years. Every individual's journey to a life of meaning and purpose is unique, which is why our services are flexible and offer genuine choice and control.
We work with residents and their families, friends and carers to build a high quality, program of support tailored to their unique needs and NDIS plan goals. Our qualified staff work in partnership with residents and their family, friends and carers to strengthen personal skills and build independence.
We promote a sense of community in our housing services to encourage residents to share and support each other, including taking part in group activities.
Some of our Housing staff are peer workers – people with lived experience of mental ill-health. Our peer workers lead skills-based peer learning workshops with residents among other work. We are a leading employer of people with lived experience, recognising their unique ability to connect with and motivate clients and guide recovery.
Mind is also working with the NDIA as a chosen provider to pilot a new home and living support approach for NDIS participants with a psychosocial disability. Find out more about the Home and Living Demonstration Project here.
