This is the follow on from 2 weeks ago looking at support that is available for friends and family of people with mental and/or chronic illness.
We were surprised at how much support is actually available. There are many web sites with links to national and local support, so the first suggestion would be to search online, for example: “support for family, friends and carers of people with mental health issues“. (Or click the link).
Here are a few that we found.
This has been a useful project for the team. We’ve learned a lot about Internet research and it has whetted our appetite for further research and reporting – so please watch this space.
