At Riverdale families and carers play an important part in helping loved ones get better. Their involvement is necessary both for the sake of the patient and for supporters well-being. Being excluded can increase feelings of isolation and helplessness for parents and carers.

Research has shown that involving families and carers will speed up your recovery process, reduces the length of time you need to stay with us and reduce the likelihood of you having a relapse.

We use the Maudsley Model of collaborative care. This aims to support families and carers and keep them informed of your progress so that you recover quicker. The support we offer to families includes:

  • Information and advice for families and carers
  • One to one skills based learning sessions
  • Group workshops to improve carers skills and to help support you effectively
  • Family therapies
