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.
We hope this site grows and as it does, it is our intention to set aside 50% of any profits generated into a RockPool Foundation. We will then use that Foundation to support further work understanding and supporting Mental Health issues.
We generate revenue through advertising and suggestions for products and books we have found helpful or have been recommended to us and tested by us. We want to keep the core of the site free for all to use.
We made the decision not to register as a charity as we want to have the flexibility to support our Rocks the best way we can.
Our intention is pure and we are here to help.
If this site changes just one persons life we will have made a difference.
Thank you for the opportunity to do so.
