What is the Personal Helpers and Mentors Program?

The Personal Helpers and Mentors Program is a new program that supports people whose lives are severely affected by a severe mental illness.

It is a key part of the Australian Government’s Mental Health package which was announced in the 2006 Budget, and is part of the Council of Australian Government’s National Action Plan on Mental Health.

The Program focuses on strengths – what people with mental illness can do rather than what they can’t do.

It focuses on recovery – demonstrating that people with mental illness can lead a fulfilled life in the community with the same opportunities as other people.

People who join the program will work with their own Personal Helper and Mentor who will support them on their recovery journey.
