Personal Helpers and Mentors Employment Service

What is the Personal Helpers and Mentors Employment Service (PHaMs)?

If you have a mental illness, receive Disability Support Pension, are engaged, or willing to engage, with employment services and have employment as a primary goal you may be eligible for PHaMs Employment Services.

PHaMs Employment Service can assist you to address non-vocational issues that are barriers to finding and maintaining employment, training or education. Your PHaMs worker has links to specialist support and government employment services, such as Disability Employment Services, Job Services Australia, state-funded services and social enterprises and can help refer you to these programs if required.
