ARAFMI Support and Counselling Service

Helplines (mental health and parenting support)

ARAFMI provides free information and support services to family members and friends of people with mental health issues.

Professional family support counsellors are available for free, one-to-one counselling by phone or in person (by appointment) in the Perth metropolitan area.

There is no session limits and a person can re-access the service as many times as they need. If the sessions change in focus, then the counsellor can refer the person to a more specialised service.

Appointments may be made by phone to come to speak with a counsellor at any of the permanent ARAFMI offices in Perth, Midland, Fremantle and Whitfords. Counsellors are also available in Mandurah (Peel) and Rockingham/Kwinana.
