Spotlight on coping with stress, depression & the menopause

Carers UK staff will post regularly here to share our work and invite discussion. Also you can post questions for our expert panel to answer on Carers Rights Day - 25 November
Hi, I’m Jane and I work on some of our resources at Carers UK – thank you for visiting our forum. I just wanted to highlight some of our mental health guidance knowing that this is a time of the year when life can feel particularly tough: https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advic ... depression

If you have any queries or thoughts, we are paying close attention to this thread - thank you.
Check your thyroid function and iron levels as these also can effect mood and physical issues. And vitamins deficiency many G.P's give carers antidepressants instead of eliminating or checking for other causes. Or these checks are just a simple blood test.

These are often missed and carers are told they are stressed and/or depressed.

Antidepressants have there own side effects. So be sure all tests for other possible issues are checked.
