Training for carers and professionals CAUSE offers training for carers and professionals. For Carers 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. For Professionals CAUSE has a wealth of experience in delivering carer awareness training and information sessions to a diverse range of professionals, trainees and students.
