About The RockPool
The RockPool was launched with the primary purpose of giving those individuals who support loved ones with Mental Illness somewhere safe to go.
Very often the carers, or Rocks as we like to call you, can’t talk about the challenges they face or how they may be feeling. The RockPool is a safe place for all Rocks to come together and share with others who understand how hard it can be.
It is our hope that through this forum and related resources that those who are supporting others with Mental Illness will continue to have the strength to do so and won’t become ill themselves.
57% of those caring for a loved one with Mental Health Illness become Depressed or suffer from Anxiety themselves. We want to help change this. Please remember that if you are concerned about yourself or a loved one, to seek medical help immediately.
It’s only by looking after ourselves and giving ourselves the resources we need can we support and care for those we love.
