- This is one of a series of case studies exploring how individuals living in London have used the King's Fund Millennium Awards scheme to make a real difference to the health of others in their communities. One in four people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their lives, regardless of age, wealth, ethnicity or religion. However support services for those affected and their carers have long been neglected. Examines the experiences of a carer of a person diagnosed with schizophrenia when he came across Supportive Family Training, a course designed to support the family of carers of people with severe mental illness. He trained as a facilitator and then used a Millennium Award to run a course in London.
