Carers of people with mental health problems invited to share experiences

Carers of people with mental health problems in east Suffolk are being called upon to share their expert knowledge to help improve NHS services.

People whose friends or family have received care from Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust are being offered the unique opportunity to influence how training is delivered to staff.

The work is being carried out in partnership with Suffolk Family Carers.

Tara Brown, the Trust’s acting modern matron for acute services in east Suffolk, said: “When we train staff about working with carers we want to include examples of real experiences, both good and not so good.

“It would be really helpful to know what people think we should be doing more of and what we could be doing better, also how our work at the Trust has had an impact on them as a carer.”

Anyone interested in getting involved should contact Bev at Suffolk Family Carers on 01473 835420 or by emailing
