Perth and Kinross Carers Support Project

Julie Maceachan and Sheila Mackay are the Carers Support Workers for the Perth and Kinross area.
They help support the family and friends of those who care for someone with a mental illness.

They offer individual carer support and can meet carers at locations convenient to them. 

We facilitate several groups held within Perth and Kinross. This enables carers to meet others with similar experiences and to talk and exchange views. On occasion at the groups, we invite speakers on various mental health topics. All the groups are friendly, informal and welcome new members.

If you would like to arrange a visit, or if you would like to know more about groups in your area, please contact the Perth Office 01738 580899 

Julie and Sheila both work part-time and if you leave a message, they will get back to you as soon as possible.
