Support groups are provided by ARAFMI at various locations for friends, family and carers of someone with a mental illness, diagnoses or not. ARAFMI offers support groups from most offices. The groups are based on need.

These include the following:

  • Morning groups, afternoon groups and after hours groups.
  • Carers groups.
  • CALD carers groups.
  • Male carers groups.

An ARAFMI Counsellor is present at all of the support groups, to provide the opportunity for participants to share how their day has been and to talk with other people who may be going through similar things.

Specific details of groups vary depending on each office.
