CAUSE offers training for carers and professionals. 

CAUSE courses are designed to provide very specific training – based on lived experience – to families, partners and friends to cope with the issues they face in supporting a loved one with mental illness. As a peer-led organisation run by carers for carers, we have ‘lived’ understanding and empathy on the situations mental health carers encounter. Our Carer Advocates and Peer Sessional Trainers who facilitate our in-house courses are skilled and experienced carers themselves.

CAUSE was honoured to have been one of the charity partners in Together For You (TFY), an innovative project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund. Since 2014, it delivered a broad range of exceptional training across Northern Ireland, to support carers of loved ones with a mental illness.
