Carers resources

We provide a range of information that give essential information for carers about their role and how they can get the support they need.  This information can be downloaded below:

  • Carer Handbook: this is our main resource for carers and contains a range of information for carers friends and families of people who have used, are used or might use an HPFT service.

  • Young Carers Mental Health Information: we have worked with young carers living in Hertfordshire to produce a new mental health booklet to help young people get the right information, particularly if they are caring for a loved one who has a mental health issue.

  • Common Sense Confidentiality: this details the ways that we expect our staff to behave to ensure that carers receive as much information as possible to support them in their caring role.
