Founded in 1995, CAUSE is a unique peer-led regional charity offering services to families, partners and friends across Northern Ireland caring for a loved one who has experienced serious mental illness. CAUSE is run by carers for carers which gives the organisation a true peer-led ethos and belief in the power of connecting with other people who have shared similar experiences of caring.
