Information for families and carers
As a family member or carer, you may need help and support yourself, especially if your family member or friend is having a crisis. Professionals should give you information about local support groups and services especially for families and carers, and about how to join these. Professionals should advise you that you have a right to a formal carer's assessment of your own physical and mental health, and help you to access this.
See 'Involving your family, carer or an advocate' for further information.
