Information for carers, friends and families
A carer is someone who looks after a partner, friend or relative whether or not they live in the same place.
Supporting someone with a mental health problem can be rewarding, but it can also be difficult and sometimes lonely. Having good information at the right time and knowing where to get help and support can make all the difference.
A carer is someone who gives practical or emotional support. Not everyone thinks of themselves as a carer but they may well be and may be able to get financial or practical help.
We are committed to informing, involving and supporting carers, family members and friends as partners in the care of people using our services. We are Gold Star members of the Carers’ Trust’s ‘Triangle of Care’ membership scheme that promotes shared working between carers, professionals and people using services.
