Useful Information

This section contains information that may be helpful to carers.  Some of the material has been created by SHSC staff and some of it is from trusted sources, for example, the National Library for Health and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).  Advice from other organisations, for example, MIND and Rethink is also included here.

Remember, there is a lot of information on the internet but not all of it is reliable.  We strongly recommend that you use information from trusted sites.  Information on these sites is put together by professionals, often with the help of service users and carers, and is based on good evidence.  Always check with your care provider before acting on any advice you see.
