Caring for a loved one with mental health challenges can impact all areas of life including work, finances, social, physical, and mental health. As a family member or friend of someone living with mental illness you might not see yourself as a carer but having support in place and recognising the enormity of the carer role can make a positive difference and provide hope in difficult times.
Our Family and Carer Support Program aims to provide unpaid carers (of individuals living with a mental health condition) with support, information, education and skill development opportunities to fulfil their caring role.
The program supports people who:
- Are self-referred or are referred by a GP or mental health clinical team
- Are unpaid carers of someone experiencing a chronic and persistent mental health condition as their primary diagnosis, who is aged between 18 and 65 and who has ongoing clinical support
- Are located in Perth metropolitan area
This program only offers support during core business hours every weekday (we don’t deliver services on the weekend). To learn more about our Family and Carer Program, please contact 1300 669 189 to speak to one of our friendly staff.
