Mental Health Drop Ins
We hold a number of friendly Mental Health Drop in sessions (Details below) for carers in Gateshead where you can speak to professionals and other carers in similar circumstances to yourself. Air your views, seek support and find help for yourself. We help carers to get involved in the planning of mental health services by inviting them to key groups, such as the monthly Mental Health Carers Forum. The Forum meets at Gateshead Carers Association at 5.30pm on the first Wednesday of each month.
