Mental health - help for carers

There is no right or wrong way to support someone with a mental health problem.

Mind has useful information if the person you care for has not been diagnosed and you would like to support them to get help.

It can help to understand the diagnosis of the person you care for as it can help you to understand how it affects them. Mind  has information about specific mental health problems and how you can give support.

Carers support groups may help if you want to get information and talk to others who have been through similar experiences.
