The Family/Carer Support Program offers support for family carers of people experiencing mental illness who live in the upper south west and central great southern areas. This program aims to support and educate carers in order to cope more effectively, by building resilience and assisting them to access other services. There is no formal referral process and all information shared is strictly confidential. The program is very responsive and appointments can be scheduled during business and/or after hours at no cost. Groups and workshops are also available during evenings.
