The Royal College of Psychiatrists and The Princess Royal Trust for Carers (now Carers Trust) joined forces and launched the Partners in Care campaign in January 2004.
The objectives of the campaign were to highlight the problems faced by carers of all ages of people with different mental health problems and learning disabilities, and encourage true partnerships between carers, patients and professionals.
The partnership produced the following leaflets:
- checklist for professionals working with mental health carers
- checklist for professionals working with children of parents with mental health problems
- checklist for carers meeting with psychiatrists
- confidentiality leaflet.
The partnership also produced a range of leaflets on specific conditions and a comprehensive toolkit.
