Charity training plan for carers

By Staff Reporter

A charity that works to support carers of people with mental health issues has developed new training to help carers.

The Cause initiative is designed to help people cope with common issues affecting mental health carers.

Cause chief executive Maire Grattan said: "Carers often feel shut out of the big decisions and important discussions, grappling with barriers of confidentiality and left in the dark about the nature of the illness and the reason for the changes in behaviour of someone they love.

"Carers repeatedly tell us that finding your way around the system is hard. This new training programme will be a massive helping hand."
