Friends and family can be a lifeline for someone who is struggling, but supporting someone you care about sometimes can be difficult. 

Sometimes people need extra support for themselves as well as those around them. Education, treatment, coping strategies and respite care are just of the ways you can get support when you are concerned about how best to look out for someone.
