Mental illness doesn’t just affect the individual who is unwell. The whole family is often impacted.
Jami offers a service for carers; from signposting towards relevant statutory services to simply being there as a support and confidant.
Caring for someone with a mental illness can be physically and emotionally challenging and exhausting. Jami provides one to one and group support, plus information and guidance enabling carers to cope with their own daily lives and routines.
