Vinnies Mental Health Service provides people with help to make informed choices about their recovery with specialised support.
Vinnies Mental Health Service provides a recovery focused low care supported accommodation service for adults with a persistent and enduring mental health diagnosis who may otherwise be at risk of homelessness. The Village is a 28 unit facility which provides 24 hour person centred supported service that promotes recovery and maximises independence.
Our Community Shared Houses support up to 24 individuals across a number of locations close to the Village, whose needs are less intensive, working towards increasing self sufficiency, and is tailored to meet the needs of the individual. Referrals are received from qualified mental health professionals and are assessed by the management team.
Consumers are situated within the service depending on their level of need at intake. Although our service is not time limited consumers are supported to transition out of our service when they are ready to do so.
