Mental Health

I heartily recommend this service to other carers, because you can get one-to-one support even if it's just over the phone... my support worker will never know how much she really helps. - Andrew, carer

Joanna, an after-carer, said this about the group support she received:


“It was so very helpful to me when my son was drinking heavily. The group I attended gave me the strength to cope. It was absolutely invaluable to have people to turn to who understood what I was going through. When my son died, I had people to talk to. I’ve made really good friends and even ten years on, we still meet up and try to help one another.”
