Dear Pat

Carers Forum uk who give support to carers of people with a mental illness, are happy to support your e-petition on the welfare reforms.

Both carers and mental health service users are deeply concerned about the way in which the new assessments for disability are being carried out.

The lack of knowledge of specific diagnosis and medication side effects being displayed by the assessors.

Including how many people with mental illness are having to go through the distress of appeals. Which also has a high impact upon the carers and families involved.
