Online Support for Carers of People with Psychosis

Are you a friend, relative or carer of somebody with psychosis looking for additional support?

A new online resource for carers of people with psychosis has been developed called COPe-support. COPe-support provides peer support, information on psychosis and ways for carers to look after themselves, all online via http://cope-support.org.  

Leeds & York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust are running a study to find out if COPe-support works to improve carers’ wellbeing and how well they cope with caring. We are inviting carers supporting a loved one affected by psychosis to join the study. Carers can be parents, partners, siblings, other relatives or close friends.  

If you are supporting a loved one affected by psychosis, aged 18 or above, living in England, and enjoy using internet resources, we would like to tell you more about COPe-support. Please visit our website http://cope-support.org, or Twitter @COPe-support, or contact:
