Building safe, supportive homes for people living with enduring mental illness.
All people should live the life they want to live.
Those with mental illness are vulnerable and can face a lot of challenges without support or a stable place to live. Families often meet these needs and it’s not easy. Mantle recognises this, and that’s why we create homes for those with mental illness to increase independence, to be a place to grow, to have emotional security, to relax, to entertain and fulfil a lifetime dream so they can live the life they want to live.
Creating a safe place for people living with mental illness.
We believe that lives can be changed with the right support which is why we’ve partnered with Wesley Mission Brisbane to build safe and supportive homes for people living with severe and enduring mental illness. At Mantle Housing we want to create the opportunity for full and dignified lives, by providing permanent and affordable homes that provide people living with a mental illness a safe place to grow.

For any of us, it can be daunting to move into a new neighbourhood where you don’t have friends or know how things work. For people with mental health issues, housing security and feeling part of a community is both crucial and challenging.
Get involved and make a real difference.
You can give someone who suffers from mental illness the opportunity to live safely and independently and yet be part of a supported community. Your support, no matter how small, will make a difference.
In 2006, Wesley Mission Brisbane offered a stepping stone for Mantle by assigning resources and a project worker to take the project to the next level. Mantle’s partnership with WMB means that we are in a position to fully assist people who have persistent and enduring mental illness.
Mantle has been assisted in this journey by other key partners, including the National Council of Women of Queensland and the Northside Branch of the Mental Illness Fellowship.
“Knowing I will be supported…offers hope to my family and me.”
“My own place. Somewhere I can pretty much stay forever.”
“Here’s a chance to be independent, to see if I could make it on my own…”
Help us continue our work
Donations will help us to continue to build Queensland communities where people with mental illness are supported to live independently in their own homes, in safe and secure environments.
