Partners in Depression

,

Earlier today, the Hunter Institute of Mental Health launched their report, ‘Supporting Those Who Care: Partners in Depression National Program Outcomes‘, drawing attention to the “risk of poor mental health and wellbeing amongst the 2.6 million Australians who care for someone with a mental illness”.

Aftercare’s Families and Carers Education and Support (FACES) service is based on our commitment to the wellbeing of the families and carers of people living with a mental illness. Our 100+ years’ experience working with people experiencing mental health issues has given us a deep understanding of the impact of mental illness on families and carers, as well as a profound respect for the vital part they play in the care and recovery of their loved ones.
