The Mental Health Carers Group held its first meeting at St John’s Court, Exmouth, with all those who attended staying the full two hours
A newly set-up weekly drop-in for carers, families and friends of those living with mental illness has been launched.
The mental health carers group had its first meeting with all those who attended staying for the full two hours.
The group will meet on the first Thursday of every month, at St John’s Court, allowing carers and loved-ones of those living with mental illness to share information and experiences, offer support and signpost people to where they can get help.
The sessions are run with financial support from Rethink – the national mental health charity – at St John’s Court which was saved from development by campaigners last year.

The next meeting of the mental health carers group will be on Thursday, May 2, from 2pm, at St John’s Court.
