At Family Tree we aim to support for carers and families by providing the knowledge they need to be able to cope better with caring for someone with a severe mental illness particularly where symptoms are more complex, such as in those with a diagnosis of schizophrenia or bi-polar disorder.
Family Tree was established in 2002 and was started by carers for carers. Although we are based in a hospital we are an independent registered charity.
We currently have two part-time paid workers (our Carers’ Services Manager and an advocate), volunteers who help with or manage specific parts of our work and a management committee of carers, service users and professionals. We also use speakers from a wide range of specialisms to deliver our training programme for us, all of whom are experts in their field.
Family Tree kindly acknowledges funding from the John Moores Foundation towards our Carers’ Services Manager’s post.
