Carers & Families - Mind Middlesbrough & Stockton

Supporting someone else is sometimes called caring.

You’re a Carer if you provide unpaid support and care for someone who has an illness, disability, mental health problem or addiction.

Caring for someone can bring many positives and rewards. However, it can also be mentally and physically draining and it’s important that you take care of yourself too and have somewhere to turn for support for yourself when you need it.

We think Carers are amazing people and we’re here for you, you’re not alone.

Who are these services for?

Even if you spend a lot of time supporting someone else, you might not consider yourself a Carer.

You might feel like you’re not a Carer because

you think it’s your responsibility to care for your family member or friend
you're providing support with everyday life rather than physical and practical support
you think the role of Carer is defined by social services, and paid Carers provided by them
Yet the support you're providing is that of a Carer and we can support anyone who is caring for someone else.
