People with severe mental illness will receive additional support to access stable and secure accommodation, with an investment of more than $50 million from the NSW Government to continue the Housing and Accommodation Support Initiative (HASI) Plus.

Minister for Mental Health Tanya Davies announced the  commitment  today  at  the  Australian Psychosis Conference in Sydney.
