17-year-old Tara (not her real name) is caring for her mum who has depression while also being primary carer for her younger brother who has hyper-sensory issues and ADHD. Often Tara takes on the primary caring role for her other younger siblings as well as managing the household. She was experiencing severe anxiety and low moods which were leading to self-harm and becoming a barrier to engaging at college and with friends.
No Limits worked with Tara, her mum and her college, to put in a full package of practical and emotional support. She is receiving support for historical trauma, is attending counselling, has joined a No Limits respite group and a therapeutic group for anxiety. She has managed to stay at college and is happier at home.
