Are you caring for your family member or friend with complex mental health issues ?
Please support this research project, the findings of which will support the introduction of best practice community-based carer support services throughout Australia, and empower those caring for loved ones with complex mental health issues.
Alison Salisbury is the recipient of the SANE Australia Hocking Community Grant. Her project will allow unpaid primary carers to express their lived experiences on factors that contribute to carer stress, fatigue and burnout when caring for those with complex mental health issues.
Alison will compare and contrast the lived experience of carers, operating under different models of community mental health care across three jurisdictions: Australia, United Kingdom and Trieste, Italy.
