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. Working with the research team at HDGH as well as community partners 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.
