Housing and Accommodation Support Partnership - SOUTHERN ADELAIDE
Mind’s Southern Adelaide Housing and Accommodation Support Partnership (HASP) program is an outreach support service for people with mental health and wellbeing challenges.
The program supports people to be able to participate more fully in the community by providing access to safe, secure and affordable housing, and mental health and wellbeing support.
About the Housing and Accommodation Support Partnership:
This program is designed for people who are transitioning to independent living in the community in southern Adelaide, including Morphett Vale, Aldinga and Noarlunga.
The objectives of the HASP program are to support people experiencing mental health and wellbeing concerns to enjoy the full benefits of citizenship and community participation by:
- providing safe, secure and affordable housing with security of tenure
- providing psychosocial rehabilitation and support services that are flexible and responsive to peoples’ needs
- providing clinical mental health care and rehabilitation services which are individualised, flexible, responsive and support recovery
- supporting clients to build their skills and capacity to live as independently as possible in the community
- improving clients’ quality of life, health and wellbeing, and
- preventing or reducing hospital admissions and crisis service usage.
HASP clients enter the program with an average of 6.25 unmet needs in their life. After six months in the program, this average score improves to 2.89 because clients feel more supported and are having their personal challenges addressed.
The Southern Adelaide HASP program is funded by SA Health and delivered in partnership with Junction Housing, SA Community Mental Health Services and Mind Australia.
