Anglicare Support Services - Personal Helper and Mentors Service (PHaMS) - Outreach service

If your life is impacted by mental illness, you can get one-to-one help to live the life you want to live.

The Personal Helpers and Mentors Service (PHaMS) Program supports people who are 16 years and over and recovering from severe, long-term mental illness.

It offers you the opportunity to improve your relationships with family and friends and to get involved with your local community. PHaMS can also connect you to other useful services and provide you with some practical help.

This is an outreach service. If eligible, a worker would meet you in a safe place such as your home, a community centre or a cafe.

PHaMs employment provides support for people with a mental illness who are receiving the Disability Support Pension or other government income support payments. You will need to be engaged or willing to engage with employment services and have employment as your primary goal. PHaMs employment works with employment services and provides specialist support for you. It provides you with opportunities and addresses any non-vocational barriers preventing you from finding and maintaining employment, training or education.
