Emotional support is vital when you are caring for a loved one with mental illness. You need practical help and sometimes just someone to talk to who understands what you are going through.
You can make an appointment with a support worker for advice or drop by our offices. We have a drop-in centre for carers at our Helm House office in Alice Springs. We can also arrange home visits.
If you live outside Alice Springs you can talk to staff by phone and have resources posted to you.
We offer the following support either free of charge or at a very minimal cost to family and friends:
We have regular meetings every Tuesday morning at 10am where we share morning tea - families and friends can get together to make new friends and share interests.
We offer yoga classes for carers every Wednesday 11-1230pm
Professional art classes are held for carers every Saturday 12-2pm
Once a month on a Thursday evening we go out to the movies
