Mental health carers journey – Care to hear my voice too?
June 10 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
This event is planned to coincide with Carers Week 2021 and the theme of the week is Making Carers Visible. You will hear directly from adult carers who care for someone who has problems with their mental health. You will be able to gain an understanding of the kind of situations they encounter and how this affects their lives. You will also learn more about the work of Newcastle Carers and the support available to carers in Newcastle.
What will you get from taking part?
• A deeper understanding of carers’ experiences and the kind of conversation they would welcome with you.
• Knowledge about the services Newcastle Carers can offer including: support groups, individual support, grants, employment support.
• A better understanding of how to identify and recognise carers and the kind of help you can signpost them to.
• More confidence about speaking to carers.
Why sign up?
As we all know the last year has been hugely challenging due to the impacts of COVID 19. We know that people have been at home more than ever before and we know that carers have had to face even more challenges. We also know that caring for a family member or friend who has mental health problems can be a ‘hidden’ role which can cause carers to feel isolated and alone. This is your opportunity to find out how you can recognise carers, hear what they have to say and know more about what you can do to help.
