Who We Help

Like any other chronic condition, mental health illness might affect your ability to manage aspects of everyday life, such as finding a place to live and maintaining it.

People who have a serious mental health illness associated with other barriers are more at risk of experiencing homelessness.

St Jude’s has gained a reputation among consumers and health professionals as being a leading provider of residential care for members of our community who have a diagnosed psychiatric illness.

If you have a mental health illness and are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, we have residential services available to help you with short- and long-term accommodation. We can provide accommodation support to anyone above 15 years old. You are not require to have NDIS or other funding support to access our mental health supported accommodation.

Why Choose Us?

When you choose an accommodation, you want an environment that matches your needs.
We offer a range of different services that specifically cater to your requirements. 

Our mental health accommodation and housing provide you a safe place to explore, dream, plan, and take action towards your life. We will assist you in developing your recovery plan including helping you finding additional support through NDIS.

People with a psychosocial disability who have significant and permanent functional impairment will be eligible to access funding through the NDIS. If you have NDIS plan, you may want to know about our NDIS programs. Please refer to our disability services section for more information.
