Support is available for the families and the carers of people with a mental illness. ​

The NSW Family and Carer Mental Health Program is a statewide program funded by the NSW Ministry of Health, and delivered in partnership between local health districts, the Justice Health & Forensic Mental Health Network and five specialist community managed organisations:

The program works in partnership to improve the wellbeing of families and carers of people with mental health conditions, and the people they support by:

  • offering education and training packages that teach families and carers about mental illness and its management, including how to help build coping skills and resilience
  • providing information, resources, one-on-one support, advocacy and coordinating support groups 
  • supporting families and carers with additional needs and cultural diversity
  • providing clinical services and delivering health promotion activities.

For further information about the program see NSW Family and Carer Mental Health Program Framework.
