A residential mental health service is a specialised mental health service that:

  • employs mental health-trained staff on-site;
  • provides rehabilitation, treatment or extended care:
    • to residents provided with care intended to be on an overnight basis;
    • in a domestic-like environment; and
  • encourages the resident to take responsibility for their daily living activities.

These services include those that employ mental health trained staff on-site 24 hours per day and other services with less intensive staffing. However all these services employ on-site mental health trained staff for some part of each day.
