You can feel confident MIFWA can be here for you as well.
We aim to provide mutual peer support, promote resilience and coping skills, and increase understanding of your caring role.
Am I A Carer?
Anyone can be a carer, yet many don’t see themselves as carers.
One-to-One Carer Support
Family members can feel concern, guilt and fear about their family member. We can talk with you about your situation, offer information and support. We can meet you in person or chat over the phone. We have a carer peer worker at one clinic in Perth.
The Building a Future program combine up-to-date research-based information with lived experiences. Facilitators are experienced family members and carers who are trained and accredited to deliver the program.
You are not alone. Read lived-experience stories from people who have been in a caring role for a family member or friend with mental health challenges.
I cannot tell you how much help you have been to me! I appreciated your talk with me and all the information I got.
Social and Support Groups for Carers
Social support and a welcoming environment are the cornerstone of the groups we host for family, friends and carers.
