Stories About Carers
Carers, support people and advocates are critical to improving mental health. We use stories of mental health consumers and the people who support them to promote consumer-focused care.
Consumers, carers and clinicians must work closely together -especially for complex mental illnesses. Carers and clinicians need to be educated about what it is like to be a consumer. At the same time, consumers must develop a greater understanding of self-care and how they can better help their carers.
