One in four people experience a mental health problem in their lives. For every one of us that experience a mental health problem it is reported that at least ten others close to the person will be affected by its consequences. These include spouses, children, family, friends and workmates.
If you are caring for someone with a mental health problem it is important to know that there are many people who may be able to help you. For general enquires about how Surrey County Council can help you may like to call the Contact Centre on 08456 009 009. The local Action for Carers (Surrey) Carers Support Service may also be able to give you with independent advice, advocacy and information. It is also important that you know that you may be eligible for a Carers Assessment.
