A Stable Place to Live
A Home for Those Living With Mental Illness and Disability
For someone living with a mental health condition, finding a residential home or disability housing can be hard to come by.
Finding stable, safe and affordable housing can help you on your journey to recovery. Preventing you from burdening loved ones or hospitalisations, homelessness and involvement in the criminal justice system.
Having a safe, suitable place to live in can provide stability while allowing you to achieve your goals.
Living on a Disability Support Pension (DSP) can make finding an affordable disability housing with the support you need near impossible.
A Residential Home for Those Living with a Mental Health Condition
What You Should Look For
Housing should be affordable
Ideally, all your primary needs (accommodation, food, care/assistance) are taken care of within your income, while leaving enough available for other requirements. Many people with mental illness may have low incomes and/or be on the DSP.
Housing should offer the right amount of independence
Different types of housing can offer someone living with mental illness different levels of independence and care, so it is important to determine which type would work best for you.
Housing should meet your physical needs
If you have a mental illness and a physical disability you may need housing features like ramps. Many people with mental illness also may not drive and therefore would need a home close to treatment providers and community resources, as well as public transportation.
Housing should be discrimination-free
People with mental health concerns require a welcoming, non-judgemental environment that provides and encourages independence, social inclusion, quality of life and a homely setting to be proud of.
