Carers Support Group

The support of carers makes an enormous difference to patient outcomes at The Hollywood Clinic

Caring for a family member or friend with a mental illness can be challenging. For this reason, we run a Carers Support Group to assist carers who have a loved one at The Hollywood Clinic.

The aim of the support group is to:

  • Provide education about mental illness
  • Teach helpful strategies for managing, responding to and supporting a person experiencing mental health problems
  • Provide tips on how to communicate more effectively
  • Encourage carers to look after their own wellbeing by staying active, gaining support from others and learning to manage their own feelings of anxiety, guilt and frustration
  • Provide information about community services that offer ongoing support.

The Carers Support Group is facilitated by an experienced mental health professional and is held on a weekly basis in the evenings. For further details please contact
