Respite and lifestyle support

Caring for the well-being of families living with mental health issues

Arafmi’s Respite and Family Support Programs provide both in-home and away-from-home support for families in which a member has a major mental illness and a psychiatric disability.

The objectives of the Family Support Programs are to:

•    Increase the viability of the family unit by providing breaks in which to 'recharge the batteries'.
•    Increase community inclusiveness and independence for the person with a mental health issue.
•    To break down the isolation of the family.

Respite Support offered by Arafmi includes support in the family home; taking a break by staying at one of the Respite Programs and participating in activities and outings in the community.

Respite Support could include a few hours each week or several days at a time - depending on individual, carer or family needs.
