If you support an adult family member or friend who has mental health issues, it is important for you and your family to have the right support and information.
This service offers you the opportunity to meet face to face with a support worker in a place where you feel comfortable to discuss any help or information your family may need.
The service can help and represent you to find your way around different mental health services and other relevant agencies.
The service can develop a care package that benefits the family and the person being cared for. In addition to supporting any personal issues, they also offer opportunities to reduce any isolation/stress by meeting other mental health family members, being part of a group support network, access to training/information and health/wellbeing activities.
Time out to focus on your needs is vitally important and the service can offer you the chance to do this in a safe way.
