  • Individual Psychosocial Rehabilitation & Support Service (IPRSS)

    IPRSS is a recovery oriented rehabilitation and support service for people living with a mental illness. It is provided one-on-one in a person’s home and local community.

    Support is tailored to suit the individual and will increase or decrease in response to changing needs.

    Who can access IPRSS?

    IPRSS is aimed at helping people accessing public mental health services who would like support to build the skills and confidence needed to live independently in the community.

    In order to access this service a government mental health worker, together with the person, need to complete an application or referral form.

    Once this has been approved by the IPRSS allocation’s team, the documents will be given to UnitingSA and a support worker will organise an introductory meeting with you.

    To find out more, download our IPRSS Fact Sheet. To discuss a referral, please speak with your Government Mental Health Service worker.

  • Avalon Supported Accommodation

    Avalon is aimed at supporting people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to build the skills and confidence needed to live independently in the community.
