Carers & Supporters Project
In 2018 the Dorset Mental Health Carers project became part of the Forum, and this has allowed us to develop our carers representation. You can find out more about this project here: Dorset Mental Health Carers Project – Home | Facebook
We partner in initiatives across Dorset that support the ‘Triangle of Care’ which is a national programme designed to ensure that the voice of carers is heard in the development and delivery of mental health care: the-triangle-of-care-carers-included-second-edition.pdf
We run courses within our Recovery Education Centre that have been developed by carers and professionals, for students who are supporting someone through their experience of mental health problems. We also offer telephone support for carers who are struggling with their own mental health.
