New Rethink guides for carers

Rethink Mental Illness and the Meriden Family Programme have created Caring for Yourself to help people with mental health problems and carers, family and friends.

If you support someone with any mental health condition, this guide is for you. You may have a relative struggling with anxiety, depression or bipolar disorder, a friend with psychosis, schizophrenia or a personality disorder. Whatever the diagnosis, Caring for Yourself can help you to develop skills and new ways to cope.

This self-help guide consists of eight books which offer tips and exercises on how to look after your own wellbeing as well as supporting the person you care for, covering topics such as finding the information you need and coping with relapse.
