Caring for the Caregivers Study
From advocating, transportation, financial assistance, to social and emotional supports, the role of a caregiver for those with mental illness and addiction struggles has an important and often critical impact on the wellbeing of individuals living with mental illness and addictions.
As a proven leader in mental health care service delivery, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare’s Mental Health and Addiction (MH&A) Patient and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) is spearheading the “Caring for the Caregivers” Project. Funded by an Igniting Discovery Grant from WE-SPARK Health Institute and working with partners at the University of Windsor Faculty of Nursing, the team is conducting a community needs assessment to ask caregivers to adults with mental illness and/or addictions their experiences in this critical role.
The 20-minute self-administered online survey is open to those age 18 years or older. The option to participate in a one-on-one interview with the research team is also available by emailing email@example.com or indicating this within the survey itself. Those who participate in the interview will receive a $10 giftcard for their time.
