Where the exact dollar amount, for accommodations services as a whole, is unable to be provided an estimate should be derived from available local information.

Where data are unavailable on grant amounts for specific service types, the value of grants not allocatable to specific service types should be reported under the Specialised mental health service organisation—other and unspecified mental health services grants to non-government organisations, total Australian currency N[N(8)] data element.

Accommodation services are subcategorised into 5 subtypes:

  1. Crisis/interim accommodation - Short-term accommodation which may be staffed up to 24 hours a day, seven days a week for people affected by a mental health issue. Accommodation is residential/facility based with an average of 4-8 beds. Length of stay is generally limited to a maximum of three months.
  2. Transitional supported accommodation - Short to medium-term accommodation (3-12 months) that is provided in a residential/facility based setting.
  3. Headleasing - Provides a supportive landlord service that assists tenants to access and maintain suitable accommodation and maintains their tenancies and which is linked to support.
  4. Residential rehabilitation - Short to long-term residential/facility based accommodation provided to people with high needs. Staff support is provided.
  5. Long-term supported accommodation - Secure/tenured long-term accommodation with staff support as necessary or desired.

Note: If any of the above accommodation services are staffed by mental health trained staff for at least 50 hours per week with at least 6 hours staffing on any single day, the accommodation services and their associated expenditure should be reported as a residential mental health care service. For information on what constitutes a residential service setting, please refer to the glossary item for Residential mental health care service.

Collection methods:Help on this termGrants for accommodation services are to be reported at the lowest statistical unit level at which the expenditure occurred (state/territory or region), and should not be counted at more than one level.
