About the resource
The original Triangle of Care guide was launched in July 2010 as a joint piece of work between The Princess Royal Trust for Carers (now Carers Trust) and the National Mental Health Development Unit.
It emphasises the need for better local strategic involvement of carers and families in the care planning and treatment of people with mental ill-health.
