About PHaMs (Personal Helpers and Mentors)
PHaMs is a voluntary program aimed at supporting people living in Victoria whose lives are affected by mental illness. PHaMs is delivered within a framework of strengths-based, recovery-oriented practice that recognises recovery as a personal journey driven by the PHaMs participant.
A key element is an emphasis on community support and social connection as an essential component of recovery. From 1 July 2016 the program will commence preparing participants for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) transition as well as continue to provide a PHaMs service.
