Mental Health Carer Support

How can we help?

Our aim is to give you the timely support and advice you need, whilst you support your friend or relative. It needs to be at a manner and place that is most useful to you.  

We will always offer to meet you face-to-face, but we recognise that this can be difficult to arrange when life is busy for you. As an alternative, we can phone, use Skype, or email to get you the information and support you are looking for.   

  • 1-to-1 sessions: These can be arranged to discuss any issues or problems you may be experiencing.
  • Telephone support: For when your availability or time is limited, or you are having a bad day and a friendly ear is just what you need.
  • Advocacy: If you have any concerns attending meetings or appointments etc., we can go with you to support you. 

As well as being a listening ear, these are some of the things we could help with: 

  • Understanding your rights as a carer 
  • Support for when the work life/home life balance is stretched 
  • Multi-disciplinary teams (MDT) meetings 
  • Accessing a carers assessment 
  • Day-to-day issues 
  • Getting help with housing or benefit issues 
  • Looking after your own wellbeing 
  • Information and signposting
