:| Caring for or concerned about someone experiencing a mental health issue? You're not alone.

As you may know, supporting someone with mental health problems can be hard. It can be draining, frustrating, isolating and distressing at times. So here is a place to share feelings, exchange views and opinions and find mutual support from those who may be in similar situations.

indeed it does, i've been using services for my mental health issues for 19 years, and its not stopped me living, in fact, my disatisfaction led to my studying and working in community mental health, and for the last 5 years running a service for CARERS and families of people with mental health issues.

Its not the end of the road, give people driving lessons and a sat nav, mental health issues are just a roundabout with poor road signs!!!
