Arafmi is the one stop shop for mental health carers in Western Australia.
Our support staff are able to listen to your concerns to provide and guide you to the appropriate support for you at that time.
You may need someone to support you through a first or recent episode of mental illness or perhaps you require information on a mental illness or service or need advice as to where to get help for the person you love.
Arafmi is the only call that you need to make. We will provide you with the support you need or find someone who can.
Our Membership and Services are FREE.
We are proud members of national Mental Health Carers Arafmi Australia

Mental Health Makes News This Week
Mental health was the focus this week of The West Australian’s weekly supplement health + medicine. The 4-page segment drew attention to organisations to turn to for support, including Arafmi, and carried reports encouraging early assistance. http://health.thewest.com.au/. The segment also pointed to the new app from WAAMH, the Green Book, for mental health services. http://greenbook.org.au/
