Training and Wellbeing Sessions For Mental Health Carers

North Tyneside Carers’ Centre is running free events to offer mental health carers a much needed break from their caring role. We are also offering training sessions, which can help improve your knowledge about your loved ones’ condition and how you can help to support them.
