Having somewhere to live is vital for your mental health and wellbeing. Sadly, the experience of mental ill-health can also lead to poor housing and even homelessness.

Rental and tenancy 

Finding a suitable property and making sure you’ll be happy ever after isn’t simple. There’s a fair bit to think about, including:

  • getting ready to search for a rental property
  • carrying out your search
  • applying for properties
  • moving 

The Mind private rental information and resource guide (PDF 1.4 MB) is an easy-to-read, practical guide that was put together for clients of mental health services and their support facilitators in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. While some of the information is specific to that area, it’s full of information that can be helpful to anyone finding their way through the private rental market and having a happy tenancy.
