Siblings Network: A space for brothers and sisters affected by mental illness

The following is a review from Hafal’s Big Lottery-funded Young People’s Information Hub. To access the Hub please visit:

A website for people with a brother or sister who is affected by mental illness has been set up by Hafal’s sister charity in England, Rethink.

Olivia De Santos, Digital Communications Officer with Rethink, said: “We created the project because there aren’t many resources for siblings at present. We’ve found that it has been a great way for siblings to share their experiences, swap advice and get information specifically designed to help them with the emotions they may face and the decisions they may need to make in the future regarding the support they provide to their sibling and family.”

The website offers a lot of information and is well worth a look! Here’s the link:
