At our Bassendean supported accommodation, our focus is on working with you to develop an individualised plan that helps you cope with daily challenges and persistent mental distress. We want you to be independent and thrive in your community.
You’ll engage in group activities, and we will work with you to build the future you want for yourself. Whether it’s employment, study, exercise/health promotion, or social connectedness, we can help.
Finally, you’ll have around the clock mental health support, seven days a week. We are here for you.
