Before you start your application…
At Richmond Wellbeing, we can provide support through supported residential accommodation and outreach support within the community.
Living in supported accommodation is likely to be different from the way that you have lived before. If you are looking at our supported accommodation services, make sure to download and read our Recovery Accommodation Information Handbook.
This handbook outlines each supported accommodation service and gives you an overview of how Richmond Wellbeing can support you on your recovery journey to live the life you want. If you require the Handbook sent to you by Australia Post, please Contact us on 9350 8800 and request a copy.
A referral form can be completed by anybody – yourself, a family member, a Carer, a case manager, mental health service provider, social services or other health provider you are linked in with. Find all referral forms below.
There is some information we must obtain in order to process your referral. Depending on which service you are requesting, a formal mental health diagnosis may be required. Within our residential services, a brief risk assessment completed by a clinician together with your current mental health plan must be submitted.
Once your referral is received:
- Richmond Wellbeing will contact you or your referring case manager to advise you if we are able to progress with your referral, or to seek further information. If your referral meets our eligibility criteria, your referral will then be put forward to the suitable program or site manager.
- Staff at the referred service may arrange an interview with you and speak with other stakeholders to assess your suitability. Where preference is indicated for a particular program, we will try to meet the request.
Referrals to Bunbury and Busselton Community Supported Residential Units (CSRU’s), PaRK Service (Peel, Rockingham and Kwinana) and Ngulla Mia will be assessed by a selection panel.
- Shortly after, Richmond Wellbeing will contact your referrer to discuss the outcome of your referral (i.e. accepted, wait list or declined).
