Hornsby Transcultural Mental Health Carer Support Group - Farsi

Service Description

The Transcultural Mental Health Centre’s Carer Support Program has established and facilitated a number of language-specific carer support groups for families and carers from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, who live with or care for a family member or friend with a mental health problem. Some of these mental health problems are severe depression, eating disorder, anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and all childhood disorders.
