Abstract: NSW Ministry of Health has several related programs under the Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative (HASI) banner, including Community Living Supports HASI (CLS-HASI) and HASI Plus. HASI had been running since 2002-2003, now operating across the State to provide support for people with severe mental illness in the community. The approach includes a place to live, support to live in it and clinical support. The HASI evaluations show that the approach can ensure people live well in their own home, with meaningful social connections and participation, and sustained lower use of health services.
