Armadale Family Support Network Playgroup
Playgroup WA has a formal partnership with RUAH Mental Health to deliver a supported playgroup to families who need extra support around mental health and wellbeing. There are several referral pathways available through the funding body – Armadale Family Support Network (AFSN) – including self-referral and formal assessments.
The playgroup is a two person supported playgroup model which provides an excellent opportunity for parents to share their experiences of parenting with a mental health issue, build confidence and break down stigma. The group is not a therapeutic model but through the use of the playgroup model offers a safe and inclusive environment where families can feel comfortable sharing their stories and building supportive peer relationships.
