Who supports and recognises the needs of mental health carers? A mental health carer can often face many challenges- stigma, isolation and living in an unpredictable environment. Derek’s story brings the issues alive and creates discussion about how best to include and recognise mental health carers as equal and active partners in the care team.
″Really powerful.″ − Professional at Open Event
Derek and Jane have a happy family life. Derek runs his own construction business, Jane works in insurance and they have 2 young children. All is going well. When situations change, Jane becomes unwell and Derek finds his life turned upside down.
It promotes the inclusion and recognition of mental health carers as equal and active partners in the care team. The Guessing Game highlights the 6 standards within the Triangle of Care.

We will consider the impact on a family and professionals when the Triangle of Care is not in place and what can happen when it is.
Duration: 1.5 hours
The story intermittently stops allowing you time to discuss and explore the issues raised, to change the action and to find out what the characters are really thinking.
We can adapt our timings to suit your needs so please get in touch to discuss the available options.
Every time The Guessing Game is delivered 6% of the fee is donated to the Glasgow Mental Health Carers Forum
"As a result of The Guessing Game, I will start to be more insistent about professionals listening to carers and try and instigate more meetings of all individuals in the persons care"
