Residential Rehabilitation Services

Residential Rehabilitation is provided around Tasmania by a number of organisations that are funded by Mental Health Services.  

Residential Rehabilitation programs provide a safe and secure environment within a community living setting for residents who have a major mental health diagnosis. The programs provide opportunities for individuals to regain social, recreational and personal life skills and to work towards independent living. These services are community focused and look to create pathways for residents into the wider community.

To be eligible for a program, you must be aged 18 years or over and be diagnosed with an enduring mental illness and have a commitment to developing skills for independent living.

How to apply for a program

Application to all programs is vial the Maximising Recovery Panel. You can contact them for an application form by calling:
