Carers Breakthrough

If you or someone you know is a carer looking after someone with mental health problems, Trust Links can help through our Carers Breakthrough project.

Carers Breakthrough offers services to adult carers of those suffering from mental health problems including dementia. It is open to any adult carer living in the Southend Borough whose life is restricted by providing regular care for a family member or friend who has mental health needs.

Through Carers Breakthrough, you can access:

  • One to one informal listening services: a chance to talk, find out information and connect to other services
  • Therapeutic counselling services
  • Holistic self help group:  gentle stretching exercises or yoga and relaxation sessions to de-stress and improve confidence
  • OCD self-help group
  • Book group
  • Services tailored to meet carers’ needs

Carers Breakthrough can help build important social networks for carers to reduce feelings of isolation and address carers own needs outside their caring role. It can help to reduce stress, offer carers the chance to speak to others in a similar caring position and offer advice and support in accessing other agencies, services and navigating the mental health system.
