… for carers/families of those affected by mental illness

Here For You

We understand that caring for someone with severe mental health issues can sometimes be very difficult and worrying for the people around them. Furthermore, there is often a lack of understanding about mental illness which can make carers feel isolated and in need of help and support.

Connect Support provide a comprehensive range of services and activities to address the wide variety of carer/family needs. These include our Carer Support Service, Support Groups, Volunteer Scheme as well as free Carer Education and Training workshops.

Our Aims

  • To provide carers/families with the most appropriate and beneficial forms of support available.
  • To work in partnership with other services and organisations to develop effective services for carers/families.
  • To encourage carer involvement in support group activities, service development and delivery, training, education and research.
  • To distribute contact information and publicity about Connect Support and other mental health services widely in the community.
