Family, Carers and Individual Services

Our Family Carers and Individual (FCI) Services in Townsville provide one on one support, family counselling and group sessions for people who have been affected by a mental illness.

The FCI Team consists of Mental Health Professionals who have a large range of skills in various areas. These areas include: family recovery, trauma informed care, individual recovery and peer to peer mentoring.

The FCI Team utilises the expertise of the individual who has been diagnosed with a mental illness, as well as their families, when identifying areas of support.

The FCI Team work within a recovery oriented framework, which supports the individuals, families and carers to seek their own recovery path.   Additionally the FCI Team acknowledge that trauma can play a large part in a person’s life and assist them with providing trauma informed care as prescribed by the Adult Surviving Child Abuse (ASCA) Practice guidelines for the Treatment of Complex Trauma.

Referral to our FCI Services can be self-referral or from agencies. To find out more or make an appointment with our friendly intake staff please phone: (07) 4725 3664.
