Mental Health Community Support Services

Mental Health Community Support Services (MHCSS) are distinct from clinical mental health services, and play a vital role in supporting people with a severe mental illness and psychiatric disability throughout the recovery process.

MHCSS support people with psychiatric disability to manage their self-care, improve social and relationship skills and achieve broader quality of life via physical health, social connectedness, housing, education and employment.
