Date Revised:

The Triangle of Care guide was launched in July 2010 by Carers Trust and the National Mental Health Development Unit to highlight the need for better involvement of carers and families in the care planning and treatment of people with mental ill-health.

The Triangle of Care was developed to address the clear evidence from carers that they need to be listened to and consulted more closely. The guide outlines key ways to achieve this as well as examples of good practice.
