A card scheme to help people affected by mental illness, and cares of them, will be launched in Dorset next week.
Leading national mental health charity Rethink is introducing the card scheme in partnership with Dorset County Hospital.
The scheme aims to make everyday situations easier for carers and mental health service users, by allowing them to communicate a simple message quickly, clearly and confidentially.
The Rethink card is designed to be subtle yet easily recognisable. The same size as a credit card, it accommodates useful information, such as contact details for carers, as well as room for the individual’s personal message.
The launch of the scheme will be at Dorset County Hospital at 2pm on Tuesday, February 8th in Damers Restaurant.
