Community housing plays an important role in the housing of people experiencing mental ill health and /or mental distress. Frontline staff and their managers are a key interface and need to be equipped with knowledge and skills to effectively engage and identify when their tenants or applicants require mental health support. CHIA NSW and the Mental Health Coordinating Council have together developed a mental health awareness program. This program has been fully funded by the NSW Ministry of Health.
