Carers Week 10-16 June

As a charity formed by carers nearly 50 years ago, we’re proud to be an official supporter of Carers Week this year.

"As a charity that was created by carers like myself, to improve the lives of people severely affected by mental illness, we're proud to be part of Carer's Week. It's important to us that we're there to help anyone that's feeling the strain, and carers, family, and friends all give so much of their time in the support of others that it often comes at the cost of their own mental and physical wellbeing. This week gives us all the chance to recognise the great work that carers do."

- Philippa Lowe, carer and Chair of Rethink Mental Illness
