  • Do you care for a person who uses mental health services in Edinburgh?
  • Are you interested in helping us understand your experience as a carer of a person with a mental health condition?
  • Would you like to help inform improved carer involvement in mental health services?

VOCAL Edinburgh, Thrive Edinburgh and NHS Lothian are interested in understanding what impact your involvement has had on your life and the life of the person you care for. They want to know what you think would make that experience better in the future.


The project aims to be an interesting experience that will give you the opportunity to share your insights and experience while giving you the chance to meet other carers.
