Get information and advice - Planning for the future
As you, your brother or sister and your family get older, you might start thinking about the future and what kind of support your sibling might need to help them cope with mental illness.
There are lots of different factors that you might need to take into consideration, and it can be a sensitive issue to discuss. A good way to start approaching this is to find out more about the options that are available, so that you are able to make an informed decision about what is right for you and your family.
When thinking about the future, it can help to find out about the care and support options for your sibling when your parents or guardians, or you yourself are no longer here or able to care. The following information can help when thinking about planning for the future:
Wills and trusts
Your relative’s future care and support
You can also use our Planning for the future action plan tool to help you and your family think about what actions you can each take to prepare for the future.
