Caring for someone suffering from mental illness can present many challenges, but it can also be very rewarding. We are committed to involving carers in our programs and there are a number of carer support groups within our clinics and in the community.
Carer support groups connect carers with each other, education and information on mental and physical illness as well as:
- managing in your role as a carer
- knowing when to step back
- caring for yourself whilst you are caring for another
- a link with external support agencies for both you and your loved one
