Anglicare SA

Personal Helpers & Mentors – Northern Adelaide

What the services offers

The Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) program is for people living with a severe mental illness that affects their ability to function on a day-to-day basis. Clients have an AnglicareSA worker to support them to identify new opportunities and gain access to appropriate services and programs.

PHaMs focuses on strengths and what people can do, rather than want they can’t. PHaMs is recovery-based and supports people lead a full and rewarding life in their community.

This program has a strong focus on the Aboriginal community, with about 40 per cent Aboriginal client participation.

Adults with a diagnosed or undiagnosed mental illness.
