This research project is conducted by Mind Australia, working with the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute. We are interested in understanding the housing and mental health pathways of people with mental health issues and their carers and/or family member.

If you receive services, taking part or a decision not to take part in this study, does not have any impact on the services you receive, or your relationship with your service provider.

Why are we interested? The evidence indicates that poor mental health is a risk factor for homelessness, and that unstable housing and homelessness are risk factors for poor mental health.

We want to learn more about people’s housing and mental health experiences and preferences, by talking directly with people who have experienced mental health and housing difficulties.

We believe this research will help improve mental health and housing systems to enable people with mental health issues to access and sustain affordable and appropriate housing.

Please contact Natalie or Elise if interested in the project and would like to know more:
