Who is eligible?

Ruah Mental Health and Wellness Services are only available to people with a severe and persistent mental illness who have ongoing clinical support guaranteed by a public mental health provider, a private psychiatrist or General Practitioner. Referrals can only be accepted from treating mental health professionals who are available to provide shared care with Ruah’s personalised support services.

In determining eligibility, Ruah considers a client’s diagnosis, cultural background, how long they have experienced a mental health issue and the involvement of a mental health clinic. Please note that submitting a referral form does not guarantee Ruah services.

If you need more information or advice please contact us.
