We are a team of people endeavouring to collaborate with the federal government to establish supervised Soteria style community houses throughout Australia for those with serious 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 meetings via Zoom on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.
Anyone is welcome to attend our meetings and join our discussions. See the Events page for detail.
It’s Time For Soteria : An Australian Perspective

These days, Soteria type houses are mostly found in Europe but why not in Australia?
