Family Carers Ireland are pleased to have partnered with Mental Health Ireland to Co-Produce Mental Health and Family Caring Programme. This five-week online programme's aim is to support the supporters of people with mental health challenges.

By the end of the programme participants will have:

  • Had time to reflect on and build tools and techniques to enhance their self-care
  • Expanded their understanding of the concepts of mental health, mental illness and recovery
  • Increased awareness around their boundaries with regard to personal wellbeing and the caring role
  • Had an opportunity to learn about and practice communication skills and active listening techniques
  • Learned about supports and services available for those who are caring

The programme will be co-delivered by staff from the Recovery College, Family Carers Ireland, Family Carers, and people with lived experience of mental health challenges.
