We are a team of people endeavouring to collaborate with the federal government to establish supervised Soteria style community houses throughout Australia, predominantly for young people with serious (usually psychotic) mental health problems . We are currently  trying to build relationships with interested people within government who will help promote this idea.

We conduct fortnightly online business meetings via Zoom on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.

Soteria Support

We are also in the process of establishing a personal support group, based on Soteria principles that currently meets online each week.

Anyone is welcome to attend these meetings. See the Events page for details.

It’s Time For Soteria : An Australian Perspective

Soteria community houses have been around for over 50 years and have proven themselves as a gentler, kinder and more effective solution to serious (psychotic) mental health problems than  institutional psychiatric wards and hospitals. These days, Soteria type houses are mostly found in Europe but why not in Australia?
