Who are the Support Groups for?
Arafmi Support Groups are for people who care for, or about, someone with mental illness/es. We warmly welcome parents, partners, relatives and friends caring for/about a loved one with mental illness. The person they care for may have a mood disorder (such as bipolar disorder and depression), anxiety disorders, personality disorders, PTSD, psychotic disorders (such as schizophrenia) and other mental illnesses.
There are other issues or disorders that affect the brain, that are not considered mental illness. Examples include autism, acquired brain injury, dementia (eg Alzheimers syndrome), Asperger’s syndrome and intellectual disabilities (like Down Syndrome).
If you’re unsure whether our support groups are relevant to you and the person you care for, please get in touch with us so we can discuss your needs.
