Caring for someone living with a mental illness can be a rewarding role, but also a tough one. Many people don’t even realise they are carers, as they just see it as part of their role supporting a loved one. During Carers Week which occurs annually in June, we want to celebrate everything they do. And to remind them we are here to support and fight for them too.

Unpaid carers save the country £193 billion every year. Let that sink in for a minute. It’s almost the cost of a second NHS.

While it is important to recognise the impact of unpaid carers in financial terms, what really matters are the people behind the number. The stories of love. Of compassion. Of care.

Our mission is for a better quality of life for people severely affected by mental illness and their carers. During Carers Week (5-11 June 2023), we want to help amplify the experiences and stories of carers.

The amazing work carers do often goes unseen. We aim to change that.
