Last week was Carers Week 2016. Many carers are unaware that they are carers and one in four carers is a carer of someone with a mental health problem. Supporting someone can be really difficult to cope with for all who are involved. Mind have some great resources on caring for someone with a mental health problem and how to look after yourself.
As part of carers week 2016, we held stands at Signpost for Carers information event and Sainsbury’s in Hazel Grove. Overall, we engaged with approximately 65 people to provide information about what we do as an organisation, the carers service and mental health.
