Minds Together is a new suite of programs, developed by Everymind, for the partners, spouses, family members, friends and colleagues who provide most of the support to people experiencing mental ill health and suicidal distress.
The free, self-paced online programs provide practical skills and strategies to help people support the mental health of their family and friends – and to also look after themselves. These programs have been developed in collaboration with family and friends supporting people with mental ill health or suicidal distress. They provide practical ways of dealing with the challenges of caring for yourself and others, including managing increased responsibilities and strategies for sharing the load.
Everymind are currently trialling two new additions to Minds Together for:
- family and friends supporting someone who has attempted suicide
- family and friends supporting the mental health of paramedics.
