Many people with mental illnesses are ending up homeless or in prison as community services are not there to support them. Families and carers continue to provide an overwhelming majority of support for people with mental illnesses. They are overburdened.
Community Options Australia is dedicated to supporting coordinated and integrated community-based services that support people with mental illness through their journey of recovery. This includes supporting transition of care as people’s needs changes.
