Providing support into Specialist Disability Accommodation  

Mind Australia has been providing specialised mental health and wellbeing support for people with complex needs, and their families, friends and carers, for more than 45 years. 

Mind provides person centred 24/7 support into the homes of people who experience complex support needs.  

We currently provide support to over 280 residents in a range of accommodation settings, partnering with housing and SDA providers.    

We are able to support people in accommodation that best suits their needs and funding arrangements and our specialist complex support teams help assess individual support needs. This includes allied health professionals.    

We are looking to expand our existing partnerships with SDA providers and are open to explore new opportunities to provide our specialised support to individuals with complex support needs and their families and carers.

  • daily planning and budgeting

  • developing and maintaining connections with family and friends

Who is this 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.   

Participants must:  

  • be between 18-64 years of age  
  • have the financial means to pay for rent and utilities    
  • have an NDIS plan to fund Supported Independent Living or SDA 
  • require support to be able to live independently and manage positive mental health and wellbeing
