Rethink Mental illness
If you are a carer for someone living with mental illness it can feel difficult to support you loved one or to get the answers you might need. This section has all you need to know about looking after your loved one.
If someone you care about has a mental health issue it can be hard to deal with. It can be upsetting and difficult to see them struggle, especially if you are a carer or a family member. We know that mental health issues have a wide impact on friends, family members and carers and we are here to support you to live your own life. We can provide dedicated support services for carers - offering advice, support and in some areas respite care.
Mental Health Foundation
We all go through tough times and people help us through them. Other times we have been worried about other people’s mental health. Whether they are a friend, family member or colleague, there are many ways to support somebody you care about.
Your Health In Mind
Are you helping someone with a mental health condition or illness? If so, you might be called this person’s carer. You might spend time with the person and listen to their concerns. Perhaps you look after them full time at home. Maybe you’re there when they have to go into hospital. If you support someone with mental illness, you are playing an important role in their recovery. You know how they normally act and which treatments work for them. You can answer questions if they become unwell. Every caring relationship is unique. But there are some common issues that carers of someone with a mental illness will go through.
You may be looking after someone with mental health problems. Or you may find that your own mental health is being affected by your caring role.

We believe families (including relations, spouses, partners, and other important friends) are integral to our clients’ long-term health and wellness. We also know that families need to heal too. Mental illness places an incredible strain on families and relationships. We offer many opportunities for families to not only support their loved one’s progress in treatment, but to work toward strengthening the family system as well.
