The Adult Step Up Step Down Program is a residential mental health program that operates to prevent relapse and to assist consumers in recovering from an acute episode of mental illness.
People ‘step-up’ from the community into a highly supportive environment when they are becoming unwell to prevent further relapse. People ‘step down’ from the hospital setting to enable a more graduated return to the community. It is able to accommodate up to 5 people at any one time. In addition, the program offers outreach services to help people as they move into the community.
The Adult Step Up Step Down Program operates as a partnership between Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria and Mental Health ACT. This service is not open on weekends or public holidays.
