At Mind, we are often contacted by friends, relatives and carers of people with mental health problems. We often have fixed ideas about what counts as a caring role but it could include different levels of support which could be regular or irregular and be provided by somebody living with the person they care for or by someone providing emotional support from further away.
Helping the person themselves access the correct information and support is invaluable. However, carers can also need information and support. Our advice and Information service can provide advice and information for the person cared for as well as for the carer themselves.
