Champions for Change – Family and Carers

The overarching theme of this booklet is that recovery becomes more probable when families and carers are involved as equal partners.
The experiences of families and carers can involve numerous challenges which unfold over many years and even a lifetime. Families and carers are often the first to know when treatment is needed. Families and carers play a critical role in how people living with a mental health difficulty are included in community and family life. Even more important is that enduring family, friendship and carer relationships exist where there is a feeling of belonging. This booklet is in part about ways of preserving those relationships over a lifetime and preventing unendurable stresses and strains which can be avoided through a respectful partnership involving the person, their families, carers and friends, and care providers from the mental health system.
