What the service offers
Flexible respite and support for carers and care recipients where the care recipient lives with a diagnosed or undiagnosed mental illness, psychiatric disability, autism or a dual-diagnosis with an intellectual disability.

Mental Health Carer Respite also offers several one-off events for registered carers throughout the year. We also provide short-term, case-managed individual support.
