How do I, as a carer?
This service is specifically designed for carers of loved ones with mental health difficulties. We provide courses that explore a range of issues carers face daily.
Meeting other carers is the first benefit of these courses. The facilitator helps the group to answer some of the most difficult questions that carers face including, ‘How do I get my loved one out of bed?’, ‘How do I connect with my loved one?’, ‘How do I implement and maintain healthy boundaries?’, ‘How do I manage my own emotional wellbeing?’
These sessions give the carers permission to reclaim time, energy and self-care for themselves without compromising the support that they can give to their loved one. Carers will learn how to implement healthy changes in their relationship with their loved one which in turn will empower them to be more effective carers. This course has successfully been delivered for Stockport Mind with five different groups of carers seeking to answer the question ‘How do I?’
