Caring for someone with a mental health condition
If you look after someone with a mental health condition in an unpaid capacity, you are a carer. By offering them support, you’ll play a vital role in their wellbeing and recovery.
Please see our general advice and information about support services for your relative or friend on the other mental health directory pages.
There is also a range of specific support available to you in your caring role:

Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
