If you are caring for a family member or friend affected by mental health issues, psychiatric disability, autism spectrum disorder and intellectual disability, our Mental Health Respite Carer Support program can provide you and your family with a flexible approach to information, education, support and respite services to meet your needs.
The Commonwealth Carer Respite Centre (CCRC) Mental Health Respite Carer Support program will work with you to understand the respite options available and how they can be used to meet the needs and goals of not only you as a carer, but your family and the person you care for.
This program aims to support you in your role as a carer, by providing information, education, access to counselling, as well as respite to give you a break. Sometimes it’s important to have time out from caring to stay in touch with family and friends. If you’re a young carer, you may need extra help with support at school. There are also camps for young people who care for a family member with mental health issues, giving you the chance to have fun away from your caring responsibilities.
Every caring situation is unique and the CCRC will work with you to develop the respite options that best suit your needs.
