The EFFIP Project (E-Support for Families & Friends of Individuals affected by Psychosis) has developed an online resource, called COPe-support (Carers fOr People with Psychosis e-support resource). COPe-support provides peer support, information on psychosis and ways for carers to look after themselves, all online via http://cope-support.org
They are inviting carers to help try out COPe-support. They are running a study to find out if COPe-support works to improve carers’ wellbeing and how well they cope with caring. They are inviting carers supporting a loved one affected by psychosis to join the study. Carers can be parents, partners, siblings, other relatives or close friends.
If you are supporting a loved one affected by psychosis, aged 18 or above, living in England, and enjoy using internet resources, they would like to tell you more about COPe-support. Please visit their website http://cope-support.org, or Twitter @COPe-support or contact Alex Carey – Sheffield Health and Social Care Mental Health Clinical Studies Officer T: 0114 271 8070; M: 07813 533366; E: [email protected]
