Mental Illness Carers' Support
Provided by Mission Australia. If you’re family member or friend of someone with a mental illness, meet up once a month with other people in a similar situation for support, chats, to learn more about the health system or how to strengthen your coping skills. This is a time for you to share with others who are also caring for someone with a mental illness.
Tax Help is a network of ATO trained community volunteers who provide a free and confidential service to people on a low income to help them complete their tax returns. These volunteers are only able to help with fairly straightforward tax returns; they can help identify and record income from pensions, salary, wages, dividends, managed funds, interest and Australian government benefits such as unemployment and sickness benefits.
