MHFFT is calling for expressions of interest to participate in a series of free, two-day training opportunities for family and carers of people with mental ill-health.

This training is ideal for people who want to learn how to better support a family member or friend to access psychosocial supports through the NDIS, with the potential to lead to paid work to support other family members in a similar position.

The training has been specifically designed to prepare participants to provide support in a peer work capacity. The program includes elements of self-care and supported decision making and will take participants through the process of supporting a person with psychosocial disability to prepare and complete an NDIS application.

Workshop Details

                   Wednesday 5th & Thursday 6th May 2021                            Expression of interest closes Thursday 22nd April

daily sessions run from 9.30am to 4.00pm  at

C3 convention centre, 64 Anglesea St, South Hobart

Places are limited, so we need to restrict to those who provide unpaid support to someone with mental ill health.

Expressions of Interest are welcome from across Tasmania. Once your Expression of Interest has been received, Mental Health Families and Friends Tasmania will be in touch to discuss the opportunity with you in more detail.
