The Guessing Game reveals the answers and much more. An original drama, developed from real-life experiences is at the heart of this learning and development session which stops and starts to allow for interaction and discussion. The Guessing Game promotes The Triangle of Care in which unpaid carers are recognised as equal and active partners in the care team. The research and storyline were devised in consultation with both carers and professionals, thanks to Glasgow Association of Mental Health and the Glasgow Mental Health Carers Forum.
“Very creative and powerful. A very effective and hard-hitting presentation.” SMHAFF delegate 2015
