You are not on this journey alone. Across Australia, many family members, friends, and colleagues support someone experiencing mental health concerns or suicidal distress.

We understand that while supporting someone can be rewarding, it can also be challenging for you.

We’ve heard from many family and friends about the obstacles they face in finding the time, energy, money or services to support someone. Your wellbeing matters, and giving to others can leave your cup empty.

Prioritise your wellbeing. Our free online programs and resources are designed to help you on your caregiving journey.
