Our innovative Carer Assist program provides carers with individual support services and education and training for carers and families of someone with a mental illness. Where appropriate, our Carer Advocates advocate on behalf of carers to ensure that the carers have access to information and services that they require. An important aspect of the Carer Advocate’s role is to provide education to empower carers so that their needs can be met. This is on a one to one basis or through our educational programs such as ‘Well Ways’.
Respite Services is a service that aims to support families and friends of people with mental illness through innovative and flexible respite options that meet their individual needs.

Relatives and friends of people with mental illness meet to discuss their problems, provide mutual support and share knowledge. Often guest speakers are invited to inform Support Group members on latest developments in mental health.
