Family Meetings – Information Leaflet

When a person needs the help of mental health services this will also have an impact on the lives of those who care about them. This may include a partner, relatives, close friends and important others. Family meetings offer a place where those who are concerned can talk together with a member of staff in a relaxed manner.

A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a friend, neighbour or relative who could not manage otherwise because of frailty, illness or disability. This may include helping with personal care, medication, cooking, shopping, housework and giving emotional support.
