Career 

Healthcare services offered by Carers of Africa are directed at achieving better health outcomes for vulnerable members of the African refugee community who have diagnosed or undiagnosed mental illness. We do this by providing direct assessment and referral in cases where a member of the community presents with overt symptoms of mental illness and where other issues such as unemployment, poverty, homelessness, substance use, and domestic violence may be an underlying cause in a mental health problem.
