Arafmi has an extensive history working alongside mental health carers and families. With over 40 years of knowledge and experience, we are uniquely placed to support you in your role as a carer, or family member, of a person with a mental illness.
Our wide range of services and programs are designed to support mental health carers in a way that best suits you and your family’s needs. Whether you need help navigating the NDIS, looking for support services for yourself or a loved one or simply need someone you can talk to who understands, we’re here for you.
