We think carers do amazing work every day in Middlesbrough for the people they care for and we’re here to support you.
We want to give you an opportunity to talk about your concerns and problems and give you some space to focus on yourself rather than the person you care for. Caring for someone with mental health difficulties can bring unique challenges.
We understand this and give you the right support and advice to help you in the important role you play in that person’s life.
We can offer you:
- one to one emotional support
- carers support plans
- support at meetings
- information and advice
- support groups and wellbeing workshops
Who is this service for?
We can work with you if:
• You are aged 18 or over
• You or the person you care for lives in Middlesbrough
• You are a relative, partner or friend of an adult with mental health difficulties
The person you are supporting does not need to be accessing mental health services.
What happens next?
You can refer yourself to the service by giving us a ring, completing an enquiry form on this website or sending us an email. Once we've recieved your referral, someone from the carers team will contact you within 3 working days. The appointments are mostly held at our offices in Middlesbrough, however we can arrange a home visit where necessary.
