Carers & Family

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.

Support Groups

Arafmi Carer Support Groups are open to anyone who is caring for or about a relative or friend with a psychosocial disability. They provide a safe place for carers to come together on a regular basis to share their feelings, socialise, offer comfort and support, and share helpful coping skills.

Carer Coach

NDIS Support

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for people with disabilities – including psychosocial disability. An important part of being an NDIS participant is having choice and control over the funding received in their NDIS plan.

We’re passionate about understanding your needs and goals, your likes and dislikes, in order to customise support services that suit you to make sure you feel supported applying for the NDIS and get the most out of your NDIS plan once it is approved.
