Keep Supporting through Knowledge and Skills

A support group for carers of people with mental health difficulties

Welcome to KS2 Bath

Do you have a relative or friend with mental health difficulties? Do you support them?
If so, you are a carer, and this group is for you!

We are a peer support group for carers of people with mental health difficulties.

Meet other people who face similar challenges as you, who can understand and support you.

Who are we?

What can we offer?

Working together

We are a group of carers who support people with mental health difficulties, and are very aware of the problems that carers face. We know that not only does the person with the mental health difficulties face stigma and isolation, but so does the person caring for them. The carer is often left unsupported to deal with some difficult situations. As a peer support carers’ group, we can offer you support and understanding from people with experience of the difficulties you are facing.

We can give you support and understanding from people who understand your situation as well as:

  • information on the changes currently taking place within the mental health services
  • access to training
  • a chance to get involved and improve the services within mental health for service users and carers.

We believe in the principle of working together and have established strong links with other groups including the AWP. We are building relationships with the statutory mental health services and other services connected with mental health. We sit on many committees within the statutory mental health services representing carers, and ensuring that carers’ voices are recognised and heard.

Come and meet us!

We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Bath Carers’ Centre, The Woodlands, Lower Bristol Road, Bath BA2 9ES

We meet in the evening between 7.00 and 9.00 P.M. to help fit in with your working day. Come along for a chat, have a tea or a coffee, and meet real people who know what you are going through. We look forward to seeing you there!

 

We also have a “drop-in cafe” on 4th Monday of the month at the Green Park Brasserie, 6 Green Park Rd, Bath BA1 1JB
Come and say hi. We’ll even buy you a drink!

Pamper Day – 21st November 2019

A joint event from KS2 Bath, AWP and the Carers’ Centre. A great event , we had 25 carers come along and all enjoyed the pebble painting, jewelry making, colouring a lovely picture created by Steve and massages by Anne-Marie. We had some really nice food, a free raffle and everyone went home with a goodie bag. Many thanks to everyone who made this event so successful.
