Comic launch Supporting Our Family Kit

Pictured at the launch: Phillip Robinson, Paola and Nerrelle
COMIC (Children of Mentally Ill Consumers/parents) has developed a Supporting Our Family Kit which was officially launched at the Botanical Gardens on Wednesday 10 July 2002 by Mr. Phillip Robinson - Chief, Division of Child and Adolescent Mental Health.
This excellent Kit is available for download from this web site.
(NOTE: An updated version of the Family Kit is available for download on the home page).
The aim of the Kit is to heighten awareness for children’s issues and to de-stigmatise mental illness within the community. It hopes to encourage parents to ask for help and discuss their illness with their children. The Kit includes a ‘Child Care Plan’ which the child is encouraged to fill out with the help of their parent while well and assistance from a key mental health worker if necessary.
