Our vision is a society which recognises, respects, values and actively supports the central role of families, partners and friends who care for loved ones who have experienced serious mental illness.
CAUSE provides practical and emotional support to empower families, partners and friends caring for a loved one who has experienced serious mental illness.
Anne gives a candid account of her journey as a carer in seeking help for her son. Anne’s story captures and highlights the emotional impact of coming to terms with someone you love becoming mentally unwell.
As Anne explains, there are positive steps carers can take to help their relative, partner or friends work towards recovery. To hear Anne’s story and in full and other stories from carers Damien and Linda, please go to our Carers’ Stories page belowMore Carer Stories
