Housing and support solutions
Mind offers residential-based support services in safe, home-like environments.
Supported independent living services are delivered in shared housing to adults with NDIS packages funded for assistance with activities for daily living. Mind provides support to those living in Specialist Disability Accommodation and other shared housing types. Tenancy arrangements are managed by a separate agency. Find out more about our Supported Independent Living services.
Individualised Living Options is a new, highly flexible support item funded through the NDIS, which ensures people are not limited to disability homes. The support model is highly individualised and the participant is able to combine formal and informal supports. Mind can assist those eligible to explore and design the package of supports that best suit their needs.
Short term supported accommodation is available at many residences where Mind provides support as well as other accommodation settings.
Medium term supported accommodation in a Mind-managed site is an option funded by the NDIS for those who require transitional housing while they wait for their permanent home to be ready to move in.

Counselling, coaching and peer support
Mental health practitioners, counsellors and peer educators provide you support, which can be delivered as an outreach service, or from one of our Mind Centres for Mental Health and Wellbeing.
Learn skills and get advice to help you live the life you want.
We can offer:
- mental health coaching to help you achieve your life goals
- counselling – for individuals and families
- health and wellbeing education and coaching
- tenancy advice and linkage with housing services
- linkage with employment and vocational support services
- specialised support coordination
- NDIS advice and planning.
Our team includes people who have been through their own recovery journey and faced similar challenges and who can share their learnings and insights with you (and your family and other carers too).
Call Mind Connect on 1300 286 463 (1300 AT MIND) for more information on any of our counselling and coaching and peer support services. Some services are available via video link or telephone if you prefer not to come into a centre - or we can come to you.
At Mind centres you can also enquire about our Recovery Retreat short-stay breaks.
Note: If you are not an NDIS participant, you can purchase these services by direct fee, but you will still need to establish a service agreement with Mind.
Specialised assessment and behaviour support
At Mind, we have 40 years' experience in supporting people with severe mental illness and cognitive impairment, as well as their families and other carers.
We can provide holistic assessment, intervention, positive behaviour support, care planning and support coordination to people with very complex needs.
