The project offers information, advice, practical and emotional support.
Caring Connections is a national service for carers (family/friends) of people being treated within forensic mental health services throughout Scotland. the service provides support and appropriate information to carers throughout the key stages of their journey through the Forensic Mental Health Services. By doing this the carer may feel better supported and informed of their own rights and more able to support their relative/friend who is receiving care and treatment. Supporting families and friends in this way may go some way to maintaining or rebuilding relationships.

Members support each other, share information and learn skills to help us cope. The group is very informal and welcoming.
