The relationship between housing and recovery from mental illness has been recognised by users and providers of mental health services in New Zealand in a number of reports and discussion papers (Mental Health Commission, 1999; Ministry of Social Development, 2002; Kites Trust, 2002; Fenton, 2004). The research project was a localised attempt to explore the housing needs of mental health consumers / tangata whaiora and the consequences for their wellbeing.
