Mind’s Housing with support residence in Melton South provides person centered 24/7 support for people who experience complex support needs. 

Mind staff assist residents with daily life tasks and develop skills for independent living - including helping residents to connect with activities and other supports in the community. Support is tailored to help residents achieve the goals in their NDIS Plan. Mind is the nominated support provider. Tenancy and Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is managed separately by a third-party agent. 

Who is this service for?

This support service is designed for people whose capacity to live independently is impacted by disability and long-term mental health and wellbeing concerns. This support is for people experiencing complexity, both at an individual and a systems level. 

This may include people who have an intellectual disability, cognitive impairment, an acquired brain injury or are neurodivergent, who also have co-occurring mental health issues. 

Residents require an NDIS Supported Independent Living package, funded for assistance with activities for daily living. NDIS funding must cover the cost of one-to-one and shared supports provided within the home.

  • behavioural strategies and complex behaviour support including working closely with Behaviour Support Practitioners 
  • navigating complex service systems and multiple support providers/services

  • building skills for shopping and cooking for healthy eating 
  • written communication and filling in forms 
  • learning to maintain a household with tasks such as laundry and cleaning 
  • developing and maintaining connections with family and friends 
  • getting ready for the day and other personal care tasks 
  • medication management. 

Participants must:     

  • be between 18-64 years of age

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
