Conversations with Carers is a great opportunity for you to share your experience as a mental health carer with staff from Mental Health Services. You will have an opportunity to ask questions about state government services and give feedback on carer inclusive service delivery. These forums are for carers of a person with a mental illness and are not open to service providers.
Three sessions will be held state wide in the last week of February and the topic for this conversation will be “Mental Illness and comorbidity and the following will be discussed:
What drug and alcohol services are available to support someone with a mental illness and drug & alcohol addiction?
- What is the process to receive assessment/intake
- What is the time period for detox and rehabilitation in hospital
- What are the support services for recovery once a patient is back living at home
