Formed in 2006, the Family Advisory Council is the voice of families at The Royal, transforming lives through family partnership in care, policy, programs and research. We are family and/or friends supporting loved ones through their mental health journey, either through care from The Royal or elsewhere.
Families are an integral part of the team supporting loved ones’ mental health recovery. Evidence shows that family engagement in care & treatment leads to better outcomes.
The Royal developed a Caregivers Bill of Rights in October 2019.
Have a look at our Terms of Reference to learn more about our role. Lend your voice to provide the family perspective to ensure the highest quality of care for all those served at The Royal. Come to a meeting and join the Family Advisory Council.

And to do this well, they need support for themselves. The Family Information and Family Support Programs at The Royal offers a variety of resources to meet family caregivers’ needs for information, education and support through their mental health journey. Not sure what to choose? There is no wrong choice – all of the groups have some overlap and taking a step towards accessing help is a step in the right direction.
