Carer Support Services – Hawthorn, Dandenong, Rosanna

Programs for parents with a mental illness (parenting courses and programs)

ARAFEMI is a non-profit community based organisation, which works from a recovery perspective. ARAFEMI is unique as it houses both the peak support agency for carers of people with a mental illness and a broad range of consumer services.

Our mission is to promote and improve the wellbeing of people affected by mental illness.

Our Family/Carer Support Program values the lived experience of people who support those with mental illness. We recognise the role that families, friends and carers play in the ongoing recovery from mental illness.

As a leader in statewide peer support for carers, we listen and support the voice of families towards better mental health through our Helpline, support groups and online services.
