The affects of mental health on those who care

Throughout Mental Health Awareness Week we've looked at a number of issues. We've covered dementia, depression in sport, Mental Health issues in young people, and dealing with the stigma of Mental illness.

For our final report we've look at the devastating affect it can have on friends and family.

Andrew Robinson's brother drowned in Whitehaven harbour after suffering from depression.

Andrew's now raising money for the charity that he says helped him begin to recover from the trauma.
