Personal Helpers and Mentors

Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) support people whose lives are severely affected by a mental illness with support from people who know what you are going through.


What is PHaMs?

Personal Helpers and Mentors is recovery focused – we believe mental wellbeing is possible for everyone and you can lead a satisfying and rewarding life. If you join Personal Helpers and Mentors, you will work with your own Personal Helper and Mentor who will support you on your personal recovery journey.

PHaMs supports people over the age of 16 and their families who are experiencing issues caused by the impact of mental ill-health. You do not need to have been formally diagnosed with a mental illness to be eligible. The service will ask you some questions about how your life is affected by mental illness to determine your eligibility.

PHaMs can support you to:

  • improve or get your relationships with family and friends back on track
  • become involved in social or community activities or groups
  • cope better with everyday tasks like getting to places on public transport, housekeeping, and budgeting
  • access community services like health, housing or family support
  • improve or develop your personal skills and confidence set and achieve goals to improve your life

Our friendly and committed staff have a unique combination of skills, experience and lived experience. We can walk alongside you on a journey of self-discovery, healing and empowerment.
