Looking After Someone with a Mental Health issue?
The Carers Education Programme (CEP) is an 8 week course for carers who care for an adult with a mental health need, under one of the Oxleas Mental Health Teams.
On this course, you will be equipped with knowledge about mental illness, challenging behaviour and mental health services, alongside learning and reflecting about your role as a carer, looking after yourself and maintaining your own mental health and sense of wellbeing. Each session allows you to explore your own circumstances, difficulties and emotions, whilst also learning from and being supported by group members and facilitators. Whether you are new to caring, or just want to refresh your knowledge and approach, sign up to the courses below.
A light buffet will be provided. Please book early to avoid disappointment as there are limited spaces available.
