Does anyone know any support forums for partners/family members of someone with mental health illnesses?

Just looking for some support online, not sure where to look, mr google didn't give me much help!

The only place I can think of that covers most MH bases is beating the beast but I don't know if it's exclusive to suffers only. I can't see why it wouldn't be of any help for those who are affected by a family member who suffers.

Or maybe they'll know of a support forum themselves?

I've had wonderful (both practical and emotional) support on Mumsnet re my husband's longstanding MH issues and I will be eternally grateful to everyone who has helped me, particularly last summer/autumn when things were really awful (they are much better now!!).

Can any of us MNetters help you OP?

Carers UK have a forum section for mental health, might be worth a look.
