23 percent of children live in households where at least one parent has a mental illness. A range of complex issues mean that these families don't often get the support they need.

Eastern Health's Families where a Parent has a Mental Illness (FaPMI) program works with agencies in Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne for better outcomes for these families through:

  • Collating services and programs run in the Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne
  • Web based information and resources for families
  • Providing training, resources and secondary consultation for professionals and agencies that come into contact with families where a parent has a mental illness
  • Providing systems consultation for agencies

The Eastern Health Families where a Parent has a Mental Illness (FaPMI) Program works closely with the Australian government funded National COPMI (Children of Parents with a Mental Illness) Initiative.
