SANE Textcare

Having a mental illness condition, or caring for someone who does, may leave you feeling distressed, lonely or isolated.

Textcare provides help at times that are relevant to you, for instance:

* A regular time when you may feel lonely or isolated, for example on evenings, weekends or when other support is not available.

* A specific time when you would like some extra support, for example before attending an appointment.

* Textcare provides one text per week for five weeks.  If you would like to continue the support after this time make another request via the website.
