If someone in your family is diagnosed with a mental illness, it can be hard to deal with. 

First, you’re probably worried about them and what will happen. Then there’s your own feelings and trying to cope with the changes in how they behave towards you. 

In this booklet, you’ll find information on what a mental illness is, how their illness can affect you and where to go for help and support.
