Respite

The Mental Health Foundation ACT (MHF) offers respite services to both participants/clients and their carers.

Located in Kambah and O'Connor, the three respite houses provide planned breaks for participants and/or carers from their usual living situation.

Participant/consumer respite

Respite House is a planned residential rehabilitation program for people living with mental illness. People who live with a mental illness can access the program for up to two weeks at a time. Respite House provides an opportunity to have some time out. MHF staff will plan and assist you with your individual recovery journey, in a friendly, safe and professional environment.

Referrals are by self-referral as a part of your own recovery plan or from your GP, clinician or other support services.
