If you support someone with a mental health condition, you may face slightly different or extra challenges. There are some really helpful online resources to support you in your caring role:

New course starting in November -Are you an older carer caring for someone with a mental health condition ?
Worcestershire Association of Carers are excited to be working in partnership with Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust's Older Adult Mental Health Team this autumn to launch a new program of  support for carers caring for an older person (65 plus) with mental health challenges.
This new online  programme will give carers the opportunity to develop their understanding of common mental health problems, learn more about local support and   treatment options and meet and share experiences with other carers in a similar situation. Our  programme is planned to start in November 2020 and run for 7 weeks and will be delivered online.
 
If you would like to know more information please contact Jane Taylor: [email protected]
Please note this programme doesn't cover dementia but we can signpost you to alternative dementia support.
