As a family member, friend or colleague you might be the first to notice changes in the mood and/or behaviour of someone close to you. Whether you are a parent, sibling, child, partner, grandparent or carer, your support will be crucial to your friend or loved one’s recovery and will help to show and reinforce that they’re not alone.
You can become a strong motivator for someone to seek help. This motivation may help them to confront their issues and mental ill-health, and can provide a great source of strength in seeking the help needed to assist in their recovery.
In supporting the mental health and wellbeing of your family member, friend or colleague, you will have your own unique needs and challenges as a carer. This page is for you - offering helpful information, tools and resources to support you along your journey.
