Parenting can be a tough role for any of us. If you are a parent who experiences mental illness, you might doubt your capacity to manage and lead your family. We offer practical and moral support through experienced peer workers who are parents and apply their lived experience to develop respectful, trusting relationships, providing information and education.
We work by providing practical support to help with coping strategies, setting small manageable goals to help you build confidence and self-esteem, management of routines in the home and family structure.
Our Parent Peer Program is the first of its kind across Australia. Our experienced peer workers are here for you.
MIFWA would like to acknowledge the critical role of COMIC WA and particularly its convener, Margaret Cook for her vision, passion and insight that lead to the development of the Parent Peer Support Program.
