Home and Healthy

Providing non-clinical one-on-one support to people, and their informal support networks, to identify and follow up on recovery and housing goals, leading to an improved sense of wellbeing and stability.

Reaching recovery and housing goals

Home and Healthy supports people experiencing severe and/or persistent mental illness who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, to effectively navigate across systems such as housing, health care, drug and alcohol, mental health and social activities.

Micah Projects, YFS and Institute for Urban Indigenous Health (IUIH) have partnered to deliver the Home and Healthy program, with Micah Projects providing services in the Brisbane South and Redlands sub-regions, YFS supporting Logan and Beaudesert and IUIH working across the region supporting First Nations people.

Who do we support?

The Home and Healthy program is designed to support people aged 16+ with severe and/or persistent mental illness who:

  • Have an associated reduced psychosocial functional capacity
  • Have complex housing and homelessness support needs impacting their mental health or vice versa
  • Are able to actively engage in the community (i.e., not in prison or long-term psychiatric facility)
  • Are not already receiving support through the National Disability Insurance Scheme and/or state-funded psychosocial support programs.

The Home and Healthy program is part of the Commonwealth Psychosocial Support Program and is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care through the Brisbane South Primary Health Network.

Home and Healthy also has a service navigation component aimed at building the capacity of other CPSP providers to navigate the housing service system through delivery of workshops, up to date resources, regular newsletters and case reviews.
