    Hi @blue63,

    I am glad you have help with your situation, but I know that providing support can still be hard. Have you had a look at Mind's website? They have a lot of information and support available on there for family members of people with anxiety and depression.

    Also, have you had a look at our Parents and carers discussion group?
