Being Heard: a course for carers

Kirklees Recovery College, Kirklees Recovery & Wellbeing College, Pathways, Nettleton Rd, Mirfield, WF14 9AQ

Face to Face

Having a caring role for a family member or friend with a mental health condition can be really tough. You may not know what help to ask for, how to ask or who to ask. This short course will help you get your voice heard when you care for someone, learning how to have your own needs listened to as well as speaking up for the person you care for.

With input from a carer with real life experience, an expert in carer advocacy and representation from the local authority and mental health trust, come along for information on Carers’ rights, speaking up and looking after your own wellbeing.
