Description: The National Carer Counselling Program (NCCP) provides carers with access to short term solution-focussed counselling through a network of professionally qualified counsellors, to help reduce stress, improve coping skills and facilitate, whenever possible, continuation of the caring role. Carers support family members and friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue or who are frail aged. Eligible carers may be able to access emotional support via the short term counselling program delivered through professionally trained counsellors. Counselling may be provided in-person, via the telephone or online through Skype. The program also offers therapeutic group counselling to address such issues as stress management or crisis counselling; coping skills and strategies; bereavement and loss issues for former carers; transitional issues relating to the person being supported moving into residential care.
