Supporting Carers & Families

Families and Carers play an important role in supporting people in their mental health journeys.

We are working to develop our services so that you feel welcomed, supported and informed about how Richmond Fellowship Tasmania works and how people are supported on their recovery and wellbeing journey.

We understand your role in a person’s life and believe that:

  • having a strong network of support aids recovery and wellbeing;
  • you have a right to be aware of the supports being provided by Richmond Fellowship Tasmania, contribute information and ideas on what may be useful moving forward and to be involved in supporting the persons recovery and wellbeing journey; and
  • you may also experience changes in your life when a person you care about becomes unwell and may also need support.


Working together with you

We recognise the importance of your role in a person’s life and are committed to continually working to improve our practice to support the person and yourself. Our current focus is to:

  • create an environment where you feel welcomed and supported;
  • understand how you would like to be involved in the person’s recovery and wellbeing journey;
  • listen to your needs; and
  • where possible, work together with the person and yourself.
