Personal Helpers & Mentors (PHaMs) Program

About the PHaMs Program

The Personal Helpers and Mentors (PHaMs) Program aims to provide increased opportunity for recovery for people whose life is affected by mental illness. PHaMs workers focus on what can be achieved rather than what can’t and work together with individuals towards their recovery.

We believe that people with a mental illness can lead a fulfilled life and be a valuable member of the community.

If you are eligible to join the PHaMs Program, you will be matched with your own community worker who will support you along your recovery journey. Your community worker will help you to identify what you would like to improve in your life and assist you to find a way to get there.

For example, a community worker can help you with your goals around:

  • Getting your family life and relationships back on track

  • Accessing a doctor or a psychologist

  • Talking with Centrelink or Legal Aid

  • Budgeting

  • Finding activities to do in the community

  • Meeting new people

  • Managing your stress

Please Note: The PHaMs program is currently in the transition process to the NDIS. If you wish to speak to someone about Skylight and the NDIS please call our Cusomer Relations Team on (08) 8378 4100 or email
