- Live in metropolitan Adelaide’s metropolitan north-west or south-east.
You can refer yourself to this service or be referred by a family member or friend. You can also be referred by a GP or community services.
There are no fees to access the Resource Options and Support for Carers program. Other providers may charge to access their services however, we will advise you of these and can discuss them with you if you require.
To support you in your caring role, we can share what we know and provide you with information about mental illness while helping you gain access to services to the person you are caring for. We can also act as your advocate if you would like us to.
We will listen and support you by tailoring an individual plan that gives you choice and control.
