Family Peer Support

Support for families with a young person experiencing complex life challenges by a peer with both lived carer and professional experience with mental health.

APTF Family Peer Support offers both short term and ongoing support options for families.

  • Provides advocacy through the maze of the professional mental health system and related services.
  • Recognises the impact and trauma experienced by families when their young person is experiencing complex life challenges.
  • Ensures the recovery journey includes what all family members need to feel supported.
  • Short term recommendations and referrals to specialist mental health and related services through Kirstie’s vast experience in the mental health service sector according to your needs.
