COPMI Clearinghouse

People reading reports

The COPMI Clearinghouse aims to promote the sharing of research and project evaluation in the area of families where a parent has a mental illness.

Providing this information aims to coordinate efforts, promote collaboration and ultimately avoid the duplication of services and projects being conducted throughout Australia.
