Families where a Parent has a Mental Illness (FaPMI)

All Programs Referral Form

Due to COVID19 restrictions we are not currently running any programs however we are still happy to accept referrals for when our groups are up and running again.

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.
