Abstract: OBJECTIVE: The principles and practices underpinning a newly established community residential rehabilitation unit are described. CONCLUSIONS: Residential rehabilitation in mental health has largely operated under the same model of care for 25 years following the closure of the asylums. In keeping pace with the growing recovery movement led by consumers and their carers a new partnership model of care that promotes social inclusion and quality of life was considered desirable.
