Online support for families & friends of individuals affected by psychosis
EFFIP (E-support for Families & Friends of Individuals affected by Psychosis) developed an online resource, called COPe-support (which stands for Carers fOr People with Psychosis e-support) accessible via http://cope-support.org.
They are currently recruiting participants to test our new COPe-support resource for friends and family of people affected by psychosis.
This study aims to find out if COPe-support works to improve carers' wellbeing and how well they cope with caring. We are inviting carers supporting a loved one affected by psychosis to join the study. Carers can be parents, partners, siblings, other relatives or close friends.
Participants are reimbursed £30 in total for their time.
