Mental Health Carers’ Priorities Survey

Arafmi is proud to have a long history of advocating on behalf of carers and families to healthcare professionals, the government and the wider community.

Mental health services and carer support services have undergone some profound changes over the last few years. To help ensure that we are accurately representing the experiences and priorities of mental health carers throughout these changes, we want to hear from as many Queensland carers as possible.

We want to know what is important to you. How have these changes impacted you? What changes should the government make to better look after carers? What additional support services would help you in your caring role? If you could change anything about the support carers receive and/or the mental health system, what would it be?

Please note, you do not have to share any information which is distressing or upsetting. You can also choose not to answer any question that makes you feel uncomfortable. However, if you do experience distress or discomfort following this survey please contact;

  • Arafmi 24-Hour Telephone Carer Support on (07) 3254 1881 or 1300 554 660.
  • If you live in regional Queensland you can call 1800 35 1881 (free call from landline).
  • Lifeline Australia on 13 11 14.

Arafmi will maintain your privacy by removing any identifying information about you, your family or friends that you share. The information you share via this survey will be used to inform Arafmi’s advocacy and policy work.

This survey is for people who care for a friend, family member or loved one with a mental health condition.

If you have any questions, please call or email Nicole Laffoley at (07) 3254 1881 or nicolelaffoley@arafmi.com.au.
