Improving Carers’ Experience

Information for Mental Health Carers in East Sussex

This information is for people who are concerned about a relative, partner or friend because they may be experiencing a mental health problem.

The Improving Carers’ Experience (ICE) Project is funded by East Sussex County Council to

  • Offer information to Carers across East Sussex, usually this takes the form of courses or workshops.
  • Provide training for staff and volunteers around carers’ needs.
  • Involve Carers in supporting the project and to become actively involved in monitoring and developing mental health services locally

 

CURRENT EVENTS –

These popular courses focus on mental health, the ‘system’, how to cope with the more challenging aspects and how to keep going yourself. Courses are free and open to all mental health carers.#

 NB

MH is used for mental health and MH issue as a general description of a wide range of symptoms.

‘Patients’ is a term usually reserved for those in Hospitals and in an attempt to make the terminology less medical and disempowering there are several terms in current use, most commonly ‘Service User’ or ‘Client’ or ‘Cared-for person’.

Thanks to Gill, Maggie, Deidre, Gordon, Stephen, Julie, Derek, Ian and others who helped-a lot.
