Health and wellbeing for carers
This section has information to help you to maintain your mental health and wellbeing including local supports which are available.
Looking after someone can be rewarding, but it can also impact on your health and wellbeing especially your mental health.
Mental health consists of mental wellbeing, which includes life satisfaction, positive relationships with others and having purpose in life and mental health problems which include the presence or absence of mental health problems, for example depression and anxiety.
