Review of Systematic Issues for Clients with Complex Needs

This project examines the impact of the Queensland Government’s Anti-social behaviour management policy on social housing tenants with mental health and substance misuse issues. The project examines the relevant literature including policy and research evidence relating to sustaining tenancies; addressing anti-social behaviour in social housing; and housing provision for people with mental illness and substance misuse issues.

It also examines the implementation of the Queensland Government’s Anti-social behaviour management policy during its first year of operation (2013-14). Twelve case studies of social housing tenants who have received one or more ‘strikes’ under the policy are being undertaken based on client records and interviews with clients, housing and support workers, and/or family members. Research from these three sources will be integrated into a systematic review of the issues involved to guide the QMHC in its examination of this issue.
