About the project

The Monmouthshire Family Support Services aims to support any family member or carer of a person dealing with mental ill-health.

The project aims are:

  • To support carers and family members to have a shared understanding of the issues relating to mental health and the impact it can have on everyone
  • Provide them with tools to help manage the mental health of the cared for.
  • Give people information that will help them understand and navigate the mental health system.
  • Improve communication between family members, enabling them to express a range of emotions and requests safely and constructively, including asking for what you need and having difficult conversations.
  • Ensure that Young Adult carers continue to receive support once they leave the Young Carers service
  • Identify the goals and aspirations of the carers as well as the cared for.
