About this event

A safe space for carers in London Borough of Greenwich who care for someone with mental illness. NOTE: Due to the covid-19, the support group will be run via Zoom.

The carer peer support group allows carers who care for someone with metal illness to network and provide a safe confidential environment to share stories and experiences. 

The group looks to encourage carers to reduce isolation, support each other and build a network. 

Supporting and caring for someone with mental health needs can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience, but also stressful and lonely. We feel carers from different backgrounds should not have to cope by themselves. 

The Carer peer support group aims 

  • Help you to open up about what you are feeling and experiencing. 
  • Introduce you to ideas and approaches that others have found helpful. 
  • Reassure you that you’re not alone in how you are feeling. 
  • Help you to connect with others and give you a sense of belonging. 
  • Encourage you to value your strengths. 
  • Seeks to Build your self-esteem and confidence. 
  • Help you to feel more hopeful about the future.
