A carer for my mum, who has bipla. This is managed with medication and she is no longer in denial or embarrassed by her mental health. This over the years has been extremely challenging and effected the family dynamics. After 3 hospital stays in the last year she now has a key safe and emergency line. I also run health and well being days and groups for Redbridge Carer’s .

Thank you for your post, which may be helpful for those people who also live with (and care for) someone with mental health issues. It's important to acknowledge the impact of the mental health of a loved one.

Would you be willing to go to our Family and carer's corner ( to share some of things you and your family have done to ensure your mum's safety?
