Personalised support services are flexible services tailored to a mental health consumer’s individual and changing needs. They include a range of one-on-one activities provided by a support worker directly to mental health consumers in their homes or local communities (Department of Communities 2011).

Personalised support—other includes services that provide personalised psychosocial support that is independent of housing arrangements (e.g. provision of social housing or privately negotiated housing) at the point of entry into the program.
