Welcome to the Somerset Carers Network Website for you.  For relatives and friends who care for people in Somerset with mental health problems 

Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is committed to working with carers.  All our mental and physical health care services will work in partnership with you wherever possible.

For people who are caring for someone who is a patient of the mental health services of Somerset Partnership, we carry out an assessment of your needs and seek ways to help.  For example, we may be able to provide a short break from your caring role, or take steps to ensure your own health care needs are addressed or that an assessment of your needs is carried out.

 

Who is a Carer?

A carer is someone who provides or intends to provide practical and emotional support to  someone  with a mental health problem. You may or may not live with the person you care for. You may be a relative, partner, friend or neighbour.  You may be a young person, but now find yourself  in the position of needing to support an unwell person. The information found here and in our downloadable version is designed to assist carers in accessing information that  will help  them in their caring role.
