Kicking off on 9 October 2017, this free online course developed by King’s College London, will be facilitated by Dr Juliana Onwumere, who is a Lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London and Consultant Clinical Psychologist with the National Psychosis Unit, South London & Maudsley NHS Trust.
Psychosis conditions, including schizophrenia, are treatable mental health problems that can affect anyone although very few people talk about the conditions and their impact on families. Millions of people across the globe find themselves thrust unexpectedly into a role providing support and care when a relative develops psychosis. Carers can play a major role in supporting their relative’s progress and recovery.
This four-week course will explore some of the key issues and questions relevant to a carer who is supporting a relative with psychosis such as:

Not too late to start and I think the course is worth doing... plus it's free if you don't want a certificate at the end.
Doesn't really require 3hrs/week but also not something to be hurried. There are alot of participants and plenty of discussion.
See you there... real names and all

I wanted to say thank you for providing the link to this free online course. I have a 16 year old son with schizophrenia and I found the content and dialogue with many people from around the world to be invaluable. It was also reassuring to know that I was able to draw on my own, brief experiences to help others. There should be more resources like this available.
