The BIG Carers’ Tea Break launched at the Millennium Centre, Cardiff today

The BIG Carer’s Tea Break, a summer 2016 campaign led by mental health carers and supported by Hafal, Bipolar UK, Diverse Cymru, Carers Wales and Crossroads Mid & West Wales, was launched at the Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay today. See pics below!

The event was formally launched by Albert Heaney, Director of Social Services and Integration, Welsh Government. Guests at today’s event heard from The BIG Carers’ Tea Break panel members about the aims of the campaign, and enjoyed afternoon tea while meeting mental health carers and professionals from across Wales.

The campaign will see mental health carers in each of the 22 counties come together for a BIG Carers’ Tea Break, with the first event taking place in Neath Port Talbot tomorrow (13th May).
