Mental Health Carers NSW (‘MHCN’, formerly Arafmi NSW) is a non-government organisation. We are the peak body for mental health carers in NSW. We engage in systemic advocacy to reflect the voices and needs of carers and drive change in the mental health system.
As a peak body, MHCN provides feedback on policies and services on behalf of carers to the NSW Ministry of Health and to Local Health Districts. We make a positive difference to the mental health system by influencing changes in policy, legislation, and service provision. We regularly engage with carer lived experience across NSW to ensure accurate and representative feedback.
MHCN is funded by the NSW Ministry of Health.
