Case study: John is 16 and is working toward his GCSE’s. He is one of more than 5000 children and young people in the UK who care for a parent or other close relative with a mental health problem and doesn’t bring friends home, living him feeling isolated.
Your essay should be based on the case study; to answer this you should:
-Identify common mental health disorders that affect adults and explain how these are classified.
-Select one of these disorders (these can be of your choosing) to apply to the case study and use as the basis for your essay.
-Discuss the impact the condition you have selected has on John’s mother and her family.
-Identify and analyse the legislation and guidance that can be used to support John’s mother and her family.
