When we use the word ‘carer’, we refer to anyone who has a relationship with someone who is experiencing mental health conditions. The services of the project are completely free and confidential. We offer the following services to carers: Individual support Telephone support Support via email Emotional Support A range of information and advice Access to local peer support groups Professional guest speakers on mental health topics Signposting to other relevant services Drop In sessions are facilitated within Perth and Kinross.

All sessions are friendly, informal and welcome new carers, friends and family members.
