Families where a Parent has a Mental Illness (FaPMI) – Information for professionals in Victoria

The Bouverie Centre (VIC)

The Families where a Parent has a Mental Illness (FaPMI) strategy aims to reduce the impact of parental mental illness on all family members through timely, coordinated, preventive and supportive action.

FaPMI coordinators are employed across 11 adult mental health services statewide. They work closely with mental health services and network partners to provide secondary and tertiary consultation, as well as workforce development, coordination or local collaborative care and support for peer programs for children and young people. (FaPMI coordinators do not generally provide direct clinical care.)

This page of information provides more detail about the program and the implementation strategy.
