'Great to meet people who understand what you are going through - because they have already been there themselves' EC Belfast

CAUSE Carer Advocates are here to provide you with help tailored to what you need to cope in your care-giving role.  A Carer Advocate can meet with you face-to-face at a location convenient for you, or discuss issues with you over the phone.

Carer Advocates are here to listen to you and offer information, practical and emotional support to help you:

• learn about mental illness and treatments

• understand how to navigate services and work with professionals

• access the support you need and know your rights as a carer

• deal with difficult situations and maintain your own resilience

CAUSE also provides a specialist support and advocacy service in Belfast for carers of a loved one with personality disorder.  We also provide a dedicated service linked to CAMHS at Beechcroft and Shannon Clinic.

With help from our professional Carer Advocates, we ultimately want you to feel more confident, supported and empowered.

Monday, Wednesday & Friday: 10 am – 4 pm
