Hospital to Home provides support for people living with mental illness and those who have self-harmed or attempted suicide for up to 12 weeks following discharge from hospital. Those first few weeks are when people are at their most vulnerable.
Our Hospital to Home support workers help people to connect to the services and support they need to live well in their community. Our qualified support workers bring their own lived experience of mental illness to the role. They’ve been there. They understand and can provide the support each person needs to self-manage their recovery, connect with their GP, families, friends and other social networks, and reduce feelings of isolation.
Despite the lives this program saves, Hospital to Home is currently not funded.
