Vinnies Mental Health Service provides people with help to make informed choices about their recovery with specialised support.
Vinnies Mental Health Service is a trauma informed, recovery focused 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 support that promotes the consumers’ recovery and maximises their independence. Our community Share Houses support up to 21 individuals whose needs are less intensive across a number of locations close to the Village.
The focus is for consumers to work towards increasing their independence, and is tailored to meet the needs of the individual. Vinnies Mental Health Services recognises the uniqueness of the individual and works with them in partnership to build a good life which offers hope, real choices and a positive sense of self. Consumers are situated within the service depending on their level of need at intake.
Our service is transitional however is not time limited so consumers can be supported to transition out of our service when they are ready to do so.
