Mental Health Families and Friends Tasmania

Logo for Mental Health Families and Friends Tasmania

Mental Health Families and Friends Tas (MHFFTas) is a not-for-profit organisation established over 35 years ago to provide support, advocacy, and education for and with families, friends and unpaid carers of people living with mental ill health and/or drug use. MHFFTas is funded by the State Government to advocate for the needs of families and friends and to ensure that those families and friends who are interested, and have the skills, take part in our Family and Friend Representative Program (FFRP). The FFRP offers mental health and alcohol and drug (AOD) families and friends the opportunity to participate in government and non-government mental health service planning and to assist in the selection and interviewing of mental health services staff. MHFFTas also engages with families, friends, and unpaid mental health and AOD families and friends throughout Tasmania to understand and advocate for their support needs.
