Perth and Kinross Support

My name is Sarah Cox and I am the Carers Support Worker for the Perth and Kinross area. I support the family and friends of those who care for someone with a mental illness.

I offer individual carer support and can meet carers at locations convenient to them. We facilitate several groups held within Perth and Kinross. This enables carers to meet others with similar experiences and to talk and exchange views. On occassion at the groups, we invite speakers on various mental health topics. All the groups are friendly, informal and welcome new members.

We run specialised Education and Information events throughout the year on specific Mental Health topics, such as Medication, Coping Strategies, and Psychological Therapies.

In addition to this we also organise a variety of social events throughout the year. 

If you would like to arrange a visit, or if you would like to know more about groups in your area, please contact me on 01738 580899, or my mobile 07920 490534. Please leave a message if you cannot reach me, and I will get back to you at the earliest opportunity. My email address is This email address is being protected from spambots.
