Exploring family carer involvement in forensic mental health services

28th May 2014

Support in Mind Scotland and the NHS Scotland Forensic Network have published a new report examining the experiences of carers who support people in forensic mental health services in Scotland.

The report takes into account the experiences and views of carers as well as information from forensic mental health services with the aim of providing evidence around:

  • Existing support for family carers across forensic mental health services in Scotland
  • Any gaps between what professionals say is provided and carers’ experience
  • The extent to which carers access available support in forensic mental health services
  • What works well and what hinders carers from accessing this support
