- Roofs Housing Association -- ROOFS enables people with psychiatric disabilities to live as independently as possible by providing a secure, supported living base which enables Tenants to pursue their own interests as part of, and in the wider community. Great idea whose time has come; their address and phone numbers are listed above.
- Mental Health Resource Centre -- A great site that is actually a group effort by several different organisations catering to helping those with mental disorders. Physically located in South Australia (addresses & phone numbers available on website), this is a very nice site with good links to other relevant sites.
- Mood Disorders Association, Inc. (SA) -- Adelaide-area resource center. Give them a ring for the latest mood-disorder news in your area and a chance to learn about their bulletin board service and bi-weekly newsletter.
- The Disability Information & Resource Centre SA (DIRC) -- Here you have a pretty good site for staying on top of legislation (SA & Commonwealth) that has a direct impact upon persons with disabilities of all kinds, including mental disabilities. Especially useful are the FAQ Fact Sheets you may download or printout.
- Your Rights as an Australian Student With a Disability -- From Flinders University in Adelaide comes this timely excerpt out of their student handbook. All Australian universities are bound by the provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA), and therefore have a responsibility to ensure that it promotes an environment which is free from unlawful discrimination.
