Arafmi Toowoomba offers support to anyone caring for a family or friend who has a mental health issue. Our definition of carer is loose - the person does not have to live with you and you do not have to be registerd as a carer; as long as you provide emotional, financial and/or practical support to a person with a mental health issue, intellectual impairment or autistic spectrum disorder you classify as being a 'carer'.
We facilitated monthly support groups - the 3rd Wednesday of every month, 10:30am to 12:30pm held at the Warwick library. All welcome.
Relief from the caring role through respite for the carer at our lovely Rangeville home; this could be for a few hours or overnight. Carer outings and activities are also provided.
Education, training and counselling are available.
