I am trying to support a loved one on her journey through metal illness & finding it very hard. I would welcome any advice on how best to offer support from both a carer`s & a sufferer`s point of view. My biggest obstacle seems to be her denial that she is ill, since i`m not sure if she genuinely believes there is nothing wrong or if she just is not ready to face it. I`m not very experienced in the world of mental health issues but i`m learning all the time. Hopefully this website, which i found in Vitality Matters magazine @ my local surgery, will help me to help her, as i don`t think you can beat the voice of experience. Listening to the voice of people who have been where i am right now, seems to me to be my best option. So here`s hoping i find what i`m looking for on this forum.
