Abstract
This report examines how housing and support services can provide sustainable housing tenancies for people with mental illness or psychiatric disability so as to support their recovery. The recovery approach to mental illness emphasises a person seeking a valued sense of identity and purpose outside the parameters of mental illness and living a positive life despite any limitations resulting from the illness. The project is situated within the Queensland policy context, with four participating government agencies: Queensland Housing, Queensland Health, Disability Services Queensland and the Office of the Public Advocate. It has three major components: a review of Australian and international literature; consumer and stakeholder consultations in Queensland; and evidence relating to cost-effectiveness and cost savings made as a result of providing sustainable housing for people with mental illness or psychiatric disability.
