Arafmi is a not for profit community organisation that has been providing quality services to the Queensland community for over 40 years. Our vision is to enhance the wellbeing of people with mental illness, their families, carers and volunteers.

Volunteering with Arafmi is one way you can help us make a difference in peoples’ lives. We are always looking for volunteers to join our team. Currently, we offer volunteering opportunities for the following:

  • Arafmi’s 24 hour telephone helpline which is available to anyone caring for or about a relative or friend with a psychosocial disability
  • Support Group Facilitators – If you have ever thought about facilitating a Carer Support Group, or feel there is an opportunity to start a new group in a different area, we’d love to hear from you! Download our form for more information.
  • Volunteers for other projects, forums, retreats and events we may be running throughout the year.
