    • To involve service users to educate carers about the inner experience
    • To educate carers in the concepts of the Recovery Model and how it is influencing current policy and treatment in mental health provision.
    • To support carers to recognise their own emotional reactions throughout the various stages of caring for a “loved one” with a mental health problem
    • To impart skills for providing care for their “loved one” including communication, problem solving, managing the day to day, crisis planning and relapse prevention
