The Triangle of Care

Carers Included: A Guide to Best Practice in Mental Health Care in England

Second Edition

The creation of the Triangle of Care has taken many years and involved many people. It celebrates a developing awareness of carers’ needs and demonstrates that in different parts of the UK those people who work with and on behalf of carers are creating excellent resources and better outcomes.


The original impetus to identify ways of ‘improving engagement between professionals and carers’ grew from a training programme created by carers in Devon. Similar initiatives grew in other places. The work of Lu Duhig in Avon and Wiltshire influenced this resource in many ways.


We acknowledge the thought and effort which has gone into creating the best practice examples and are grateful for the generosity of carer champions in responding to requests to make them widely available.


The evolution of the Triangle of Care guide into the Triangle of Care project which encompasses all areas of mental health service delivery across England is thanks to many dedicated professionals, carers and services users who are involved in the Carers Trust’s Triangle of Care Steering Group and the eight regional Triangle of Care groups.

The Triangle of Care guide can be used across all mental health services, not only inpatient, and includes a universal self-assessment tool as well as guidance notes.
