About the SCSUSD service

The SCSUSD service is a community-based mental health service that provides specialist care for people needing additional support who cannot live safely in their usual home environment.

The new Southside Community SUSD service is an adult service for people aged between 18 and 65 years of age that focuses on prevention and recovery care. 

The SUSD model of care has already proven successful in the ACT.

Latest progress

The Southside Community Step Up Step Down Mental Health facility to be constructed in Gaunt Place is one step closer with demolition works now complete.
