Summarises new evidence on the physical and mental health of carers. The review analyses the findings from a cross-sectional study in England, which reported that around 20 per cent of carers experienced common mental disorders, highlighting that this poor mental health was directly related to caring rather than other stressors. A cohort study in Australia reported that more than a third of carers experienced deterioration of their physical or mental health after starting caring. Both studies offer insights for health and social care service providers in designing assessments and targeting support for carers. (Edited publisher abstract)

Place of publication:

Guideline providing practice advice on admissions and discharges between mental health acute hospital settings and community or care home settings for children, young people and adults of all ages. It considers how person-centred care and support should be planned and delivered during admission to, and discharge from, mental health hospitals. It also addresses how services should work together and with the person, their family and carers, to ensure transitions are timely, appropriate and safe. It aims to help people who use mental health services, and their families and carers, to have a better experience of transition by improving the way it is planned and carried out. Recommendations cover: overarching principles for good transition, planning for hospital admission and discharge, out-of-area admissions, and support for families and carers throughout admission. It highlights the importance of building relationships with people as early as possible, involving people in decisions when they are going into and out of hospital, and for people admitted to a hospital out-of-area to have a named practitioner assigned from the person’s home area who will work closely with their hospital team. The guideline will be relevant for providers of care and support in inpatient and community mental health and social care services; front-line practitioners and managers, commissioners of mental health services, and people who use inpatient and community mental health services, their families and carers.
