Mental Health Respite – Carers & Work Program


The program, being delivered by OTCP within the Fraser Coast, Gympie and South Burnett Local Government areas, is designed to assist carers of people with a mental health issue to achieve their personal and vocational goals.


The program provides support for carers to build resilience, address non-vocational barriers to attaining employment and/or manage current employment opportunities which may be at risk as a result of their caring responsibilities.


Eligibility for the program requires a participant to be caring for (or have cared for in the previous two years) a person living with a mental health issue.  They must require support to sustain their caring role and/or wish to attain employment.
