Welcome to Mental Health Foundations for Carers

This program is designed to assist carers looking after someone with a mental illness.

If you care for someone with a mental illness, you face particular challenges and issues due to the nature of mental illness - but you don’t need to feel like you are alone. If you find the mental health system confusing and feel your own needs are not being met, these resources can assist you.

  • The Resources web-pages set out practical supports and services you can access

  • The Foundations Interactive explores common issues faced by carers of someone with a mental illness. This interactive also contains video clips of carers sharing their experiences, as well as photos and text.

You can explore this online program at any time that suits you in the comfort of your own home. You can review and revisit any of the content at any time you like. So take a look!
