Event description
A series of workshops to assist carers of people with a mental illness. Help find a path through the maze.

About this Event

Join Carers ACT in a series of workshops to assist you in your role as a carer of someone with a mental illness. We will focus on:

  • The NDIS - what can it help with, how to put together an application and what to do once a plan has been approved
  • Navigating the ACT Mental Health System
  • Looking after you so you can look after them

We are also offering:

  • an opportunity for carers to get together in a social environment for dinner on the Tuesday night
  • an opportunity for carers to get some down time by staying overnight at the hotel

Please select tickets for the workshops that you wish to attend below. If you wish to stay overnight please email Wayne via support.groups@carersact.org.au
