The Strain Of Caregiving: How Caregiver Involvement Reduces Distress And Conflict

In recognition of National Family Caregivers Month, Mental Health America (MHA) released a new report, The Strain of Caregiving: How Caregiver Involvement Reduces Distress and Conflict, which explores whether family caregivers feel involved in the care of their loved ones, if involvement has an effect on their levels of distress and conflict in providing care, and the hope they have for their loved one’s recovery.


This report is an analysis of survey responses from 817 caregivers of a family member or friend living with a mental health condition collected from October 2019-May 2020.

Based on these findings, MHA offers several recommendations for more effective engagement of caregivers, including changes to systems of care that can help to reduce distress and conflict that contribute to the strain of caregiving.
