Hi everyone, I hadn’t realised till recently that I was a carer but as my partner has had an episode of psychosis and is in hospital, it feels, looking back, as though I may have been trying to be a carer for a while. When my partner is home, I want to be the best support I can be for her. Hopefully this network will help.

Hello and welcome!

Has a needs assessment happened or not yet?

Hi Stephen and welcome,

the best way to help your partner is by finding out as much as possible https://www.mind.org.uk and look after yourself by ensuring you get enough exercise and time for yourself.
