MHFFTas are looking to co-design a Mental Health and AOD Family and Friend Mentoring Program to support mental health and AOD families and friends.
A mentoring program allows people to learn from one another and to provide a pathway to share skills, strategies and knowledge.
In this case, MHFFTas’ proposed mentoring program aims to mobilise people with lived experience supporting someone living with mental ill health or co-occurring mental ill health and AOD use, to support other family members and friends to:
- Support families and friends in navigating the system and the services within that system
- Support families and friends in navigating their own support journey
- Support families and friends to advocate for their own rights and needs, as well as the rights and needs of the person/s they support
- Provide opportunities for connection with other families and friends
We invite families and friends to participate in this 10 minute survey to inform what a successful mentoring program looks like for families and friends. To participate, follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3XY3DQD
At the end of the survey, if you are interested in being a part in further consultations in smaller focus groups, then we invite you to leave your name, email address, and mobile number. Your time in these groups will be reimbursed. For more questions about this, email the Lived Experience Project Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0429 121 576.
