Carer psychoeducation

Development of family, carer and staff mental health literacy resources is part of the Key Area of Family Centred Care.  The aim is to design and implement campus wide education, training and support in mental health literacy for families, carers and the workforce.  Families, carers and staff will have access to education and resources to know when and how to seek help early for a child or young person experiencing mental health concerns, and optimise their wellbeing.  This objective will also support skills to help families and carers navigate mental health services.  This recognises that ‘right place right time’ mental health education can promote the early identification and access to mental health support for children and young people.  Families, carers and consumers will be engaged in the development of education, tools and support within this objective.

At Mental Health Central we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live, gather and work. We recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

We acknowledge all people with a lived or living experience of mental ill-health and recovery. At the Campus, we particularly acknowledge children, young people, families, carers, and supporters. We recognise their vital contribution and value the courage of those who share this unique perspective for the purpose of learning and growing together to achieve better outcomes for the Campus, staff, sector, and all people of lived experience.
