Anxiety disorders - Carers
Information for carers, friends and relatives
It’s important to be aware of your own mental health and get your own support if are struggling to cope. There may be a local carers’ support group you can go to. You can ask for a carer’s assessment from your local authority if you need extra support to care for your relative.
You can be involved in your relative’s care and support planning. But only if your relative wants you to be involved. This is because of confidentiality law. The team should ask your relative if they are happy for information to be shared with you.
