Mindset Foundations Journey Map
Foundations Program Outcomes
The Foundations program is person-centred and strengths-focused, with individuals receiving care tailored to their specific needs, goals and situation.
Foundations promotes recovery
Foundations promotes recovery and provides flexibility, equity and efficiency – engaging not only the individuals but also MHS, their family, carers, and community – if the individual chooses. The program supports individuals to have more control in their life, identifying resources that will help meet their particular needs – supporting them towards their recovery goals.
Intensive support to help individuals
The program offers wrap-around‚ intensive support in a range of areas, as led by the individual and their goals. These can include, to find and keep accommodation; foster independent living skills; improve social connection; improve their overall social and emotional well-being, connect to the community; increase independence; and, remain well.
The Foundations program is wonderful and they support the clients so well, unlike any other program. When Foundations was in its early stages we thought here is another program, how long will it last and will it deliver. We are so pleased to say the program is great and the clients are so well supported once they leave our facility.

Foundations workers are amazing with the clients and they do all the work supporting clients that we are unable to do. The program and the workers are a credit to Baptcare, and the respect they show for clients. We are all very happy Foundations is available to refer vulnerable clients to.

Every individual experiences their mental health differently.

Foundations offers a safe place for each individual to be heard and feel valued, and to find purpose and connection within their community. Every individual experiences their mental health differently and the Foundations team are guided by these experiences in the way that they work with each person. The Foundations team provides understanding and support that accommodates these complexities of mental health, as well as the barriers in people’s lives.

Foundations management understand the complex nature of the work that staff do and demonstrate a commitment to supporting and caring for the wellbeing of workers.
