Mental health carers support service

We support people who care for a neighbour, friend or relative with a mental health issue.

We’re here to:

  • help you think about how caring impacts on you, both emotionally and socially
  • provide practical and emotional support for you to manage your own wellbeing and help you with your caring relationship
  • give you practical tools and techniques to manage daily life as a mental health carer
  • help you navigate your way round the support services available to you and the person you care for
  • provide one to one telephone support about your caring role and its impact on you.

 

Groups and workshops

  • Carers drop-in surgery. Individual appointments available every Monday between 1.30pm - 4.30pm on Zoom. Meet and talk with a Carers Support Advisor about caring for someone with mental health problems.

In this private session, you can talk in confidence, and receive free and impartial information, advice and support about managing in your caring role. To book, please text “DROPIN” to 07718403574 and a member of our team will get back to you with an appointment within 48 hours.

  • Coping with Caring During. This is a free, 6-week, practical course. It's based on the Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model and aims to help participants understand the impact that caring can have on mental health and develop ways to manage their own mental wellbeing.
