What’s your story?

Take a moment to jot down how you feel and what you need most in terms of support. For example, you may want to write about some of or all the following:

  • How does the person’s mental illness affect you?
  • What are you fears, both for yourself and the person you are caring for?
  • What support do you need most at this stage?
  • How can others help you?

Write down your thoughts so that you can refer to them later.
