Mental Health And Family Caring Programme

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.

Our programme has been adapted from the Meridien Family Programme 'Caring for Carers'. It has been co-produced with family carers, supporters, people with lived experience of mental health challenges and service providers.

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.
