As the BLF Family, friends and carers project development officer, I was pleased to read at the weekend that doctors are being encouraged to screen carers for depression.
Looking after someone with a chronic condition can take its toll on your physical and mental health; but few people either seek help or are being signposted to the appropriate support.
The BLF's booklet 'Looking after someone with a lung condition' provides information not only about supporting your loved one but about making sure you look after your own health.
Let us know what you think!
