Caring for someone with depression: Caring for two?

If someone you know or a loved one is living with depression, it can be difficult to know what to do. In supporting a person with depression you may face some challenges that you have never tackled before, which may put a strain on both you and your loved one.

The European Federation of Associations of Families with Mental Illness (EUFAMI) (www.eufami.org) have launched a booklet to help you take care of yourself while caring for a loved one with depression.

It is full of useful information and advice to support both you and the person you care for.

Remember, taking time for yourself isn’t selfish – by looking after yourself you can make sure you are better able to support and care for your loved ones struggling with depression.
