Local support group?

For issues specific to caring for someone with mental ill health.
I'm looking for some in person support?

I am sole carer (not live in) for my Mother who has a long standing diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia and is sectioned as a danger to society.

I would really like to talk to people who understand the condition and the toll it takes on the family.

Does anyone know where I should look for this type of support please?
Hi Catherine,

welcome to the forum.

The Mind website might be a good place to start https://www.mind.org.uk/information-sup ... g-support/

https://www.mind.org.uk/information-sup ... tForCarers

It also has information on different mental health conditions.
