New Mental Health Tenancy Support Program

MHACA is excited to announce a new program with a focus on supporting participants to obtain and maintain secure housing. The program emphasises a client centred approach with an aim to deliver a holistic and tailored plan for the individual.

Along with the new program we also welcome the two new Tenancy Support Workers who will be implementing the program. Michelle Fearnhead, who will be working full time and Helen Law, who will work three days per week. Both have extensive experience and knowledge that will benefit the program and the participants and both are looking forward to engaging with participants and stakeholders and building positive and rewarding connections.

The Mental Health Tenancy Support Program can help individuals understand their rights and responsibilities as tenants, advocate on their behalf, and assist with other issues and worries that might be impacting on their ability to maintain a tenancy.

A referral form will soon be uploaded to our website, but in the meantime, please contact the MH-TSP workers on 8952 4600 to find out more about the program or to make a referral.

More information can also be found on the Individual Support Services page in this website.

The NT Lived Experience Network will deliver their peer programs 'Recovery Together' and 'Circles of Support' between April and June In Mparntwe/Alice Springs. These two programs are locally created and facilitated by people who have lived experiences and have been trained to support others on their journey.

'Recovery Together' is for people who experience alcohol, drug, gambling and/or mental health challenges. It was first delivered in Alice Springs in 2023 and provides evidence-based tools and strategies that support recovery through discussions and creative activities.

'Circles of Support' is for the family and kin of people who experience alcohol, drug, gambling and/or mental health related challenges. Family and kin will gain connection and knowledge of the experiences impacting their loved one, themselves and other family members. It is designed to support families to maintain their wellbeing and be in a better position to support their loved ones.

We had a great time at World No Tobacco Day 2024 Fun Run today! Over 100 people came out for games, painting, smoothies, and free haircuts. Thanks Central Australian Aboriginal Congress and Alice Springs Town Council for inviting us to be part of such a positive event.

Smoking and vaping have detrimental impacts on our physical health. While nicotine may create an immediate sense of relaxation, research has shown that smoking actually increases anxiety and tension. Need help quitting? Call Quitline on 13 78 48 or text 'call back' to 0482 090 634.
