A personal health and wellbeing plan for family, friends and carers
Supporting someone you care about who has mental health challenges can easily take over your whole life. It is tempting to think only of their needs and ignore your own. If this happens then it is not good for you and not good for the person you love and care about. Your health and wellbeing are important.
Many people find it helpful to draw up a plan for how they can look after themselves while supporting someone they love and care about. We've developed a booklet to help you to do this.
This makes some suggestions for things you might want to think about in drawing up a plan to look after yourself, but there is no set formula. Different people choose to develop their plans in different ways. Different people find different things helpful. You can develop the plan to suit you.
