Why don’t you try? : Find mental health services for your loved one
The Rethink Carers Hub has all you need to know about looking after your loved one when they are suffering from a mental illness. You can use their page to find a support group to help you help your loved one. They have groups for carers only, for people who have lived experience of mental illness or both.
Reading well for mental health provides helpful information and support for managing common mental health conditions, or dealing with difficult feelings and experiences. Some books also include personal stories from people who are living with or caring for someone with mental health needs.
The books are available to borrow from your local library. Selected titles are also available to borrow as e-books and audiobooks. Visit your local library to find out how to join the library and access books electronically.
