We support people to have a safe, dignified, personally meaningful and gratifying life in the community.
Families and carers
Mind recognises the importance of families in the lives of many of our clients. We provide support to families that include a person with mental health issues.
Our staff will take the time to find out what is most helpful for an individual family, and we will work with family members to explore a range of options that best suits their needs. This may include social and recreational activities in the local area, a range of groups, peer support, holidays or other supports. This also may include a referral to other services in your area, such as counselling services, carer support groups and other services that may assist you. We also provide a specialist family therapy service in some areas.
If you are a carer in need of support, please contact the Carer Helpline on 1300 550 265.
