Caring for Carers - 3-day training course – 1st - 3rd July 2014

Please see Summary/Documents for information on dates. The event will be held at Uffculme Centre, Queensbridge Road, Moseley B13 8QY

The Caring for Carers course is a very important element in our Carers’ Strategy that was developed in consultation with carers and which seeks to improve the quality of support available to carers. This 3 day course gives participants the practical skills and resources to enable them to roll out an information and support programme to the carers and family members of people who access mental health services. The course enables professionals and carers to work together in rolling out a comprehensive information and support programme which many carers have found to be extremely helpful. Who should apply? Ideally groups of 3 (including a carer if possible) from teams or localities.
