Carers of People with Mental Health Issues
Moving on Group for Former Carers
We have previously run Male Carers Support Group and Lone Carers (for those who have no family/friends support networks) and would consider running these again subject to demand.
Sometimes people can feel low in mood or anxious in response to their life experiences or as a result of their caring responsibilities. We offer access to wellbeing support. The Wellbeing Service is for Carers who are experiencing common problems such as anxiety and depression. It is a partnership between the NHS, Sutton Carers Centre and other voluntary sector organisations.
Contact us if you would like more information.
The Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme supports the frontline NHS in implementing National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for people suffering from depression and anxiety disorders.
It was created to offer patients a realistic and routine first-line treatment, combined where appropriate with medication which traditionally had been the only treatment available.
