Carers Mental Health Forum

Are you caring for someone with a mental illness? 

Join this forum to discuss Carers Mental Health. 

Why Carers Mental Health?

Caring for someone with a mental illness can be challenging, exhausting and confusing at times. There is considerable evidence that carers suffer adverse physical and mental health. It is important that we recognise this and provide them with relevant support, information and advice so that they know how to maintain their own health and well being.

The aim of the forum will be to recognise and acknowledge the important role carers play in the mental health system and also to discuss the status of support available to them.

When: October 28, 2020, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEST

Where: Virtual on Zoom  

Register:  Online at
