Caring for someone with a mental illness can be challenging. You may like support for your health and wellbeing, and to help you to continue providing the best care possible.
We offer carers access to advice, support, training and respite.

Caring can be challenging and there may be times when you need a break. Our Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre provides support, respite and advice.Read more
Respite can give you time to do everyday tasks, and to support your own physical and mental health. We offer regular, occasional or crisis respite care for the person you care for, and support them to take part in enjoyable activities from your home, in the community or from our offices.
We can also help you to work out what support you need, and where you can find this within your community.
The service operates in the Barossa, mid and far north regions, Eyre Peninsula and Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.
This service is funded by the Commonwealth Government Department of Health and Ageing.
Mental Health Carer Support and Respite
People caring for a person with a severe mental illness or intellectual disability may need respite and support from time to time. We offer support for carers living in the north-west metropolitan, north-west country and south-east country SA areas.
As this program is transitioning to the NDIS, we are not currently taking new clients. However, the Commonwealth Respite and Carelink Centre may be able to support your respite needs.
