Keeping records

Throughout this handbook we suggest that keeping records can help you to support your family member. Keeping records may save your family member from having to repeat medications that have not worked in the past or help you reconnect with a health professional who was particularly helpful in a crisis or other situation. It may also assist you to recognize what helps your family member stay well. Some family members have found it helpful to keep records via a journal. In the journal, they also note their own thoughts, experiences and perspectives. On this page, we give you tips and offer suggestions for keeping records.
