Experts from Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust and Making Space will be giving a free talk about caring for someone with a mental health problem and the local support available for carers.

Mental ill health is common with 1 in 4 adults and 1 in 10 children in the UK experiencing a problem each year. The support of friends and family members can often play a vital role in helping people with their recovery.

The free talk will outline how carers can support a person who is experiencing mental ill health and will highlight the different services carers can access.  It will also consider carers’ needs and will give practical tips on coping during difficult times.

Tracey Corner, Patient Experience Lead at the Care Trust said; “Mental health illness affects many people and carers play a vital role in supporting them through the illness.  This talk is designed to offer free information, advice and support to those carers that are currently supporting someone with a mental health problem”.

The event will take place during national carers week on Tuesday 9 June 2015, 1.30pm – 3.00pm or 6.00pm – 7.30pm at The Bradford Hotel, Hall Ings, Bradford, West Yorkshire BD1 5SH. Places are limited for more information and to book your place email or telephone 01274 363601.
