About Us

Mental Health Respite: Carers Support (MHR: CS) is funded by Department of Social Services to assist carers of people with a mental illness (including of Autism Spectrum Disorder) to sustain their caring roles and maintain connection with their communities, by increasing access to flexible and innovative carers support activities.

A carer does not have to be related (by marriage or biologically) to the person for whom they are caring. Foster carers or kinship carers, caring for a person because of their mental illness, are eligible for MHR: CS.
