You are the expert in your own experiences, so we want to work with you to help. In Bunbury and Busselton, we can support you to find out what is affecting your mental health.
Our intention, at all times, is to help you in finding your value. This is always the first step towards leading and living the life that has meaning for you. We want you to feel empowered in your daily life, so our supported accommodation is geared towards developing these skills.
We offer one, two or three bedroom units, staffed 24/7. You’ll also have the opportunity to care for a therapy dog, making you feel comfortable when you go to attend appointments in the community. You will be in a supportive and safe environment.

”Because this is a small community it feels inclusive and safe. I found Richmond Wellbeing supported me by providing me with a ‘map’ for my life.”
”Richmond staff were very friendly and supportive of my attempts to live more independently and renew my interrupted work and community life. By living with others with a shared experience of mental illness I was able to help others as well as gain insights into my own issues and make many strong friendships along the way.”
