Mental Health Awareness Month: Tips for Caregiving for a Loved One Living with a Mental Illness
Mental Health Awareness Month is a time to raise awareness of behavioral health issues as well as highlight the ways how mental illness can affect all of us and how essential it is to overall health and well-being.
When a loved one is struggling with a mental illness, it’s normal to feel a range of emotions and stress, especially when you may take on new roles and responsibilities. It’s important to note that everyone’s experience with mental illness will also be different.
Caregiving can take many forms and has a great possibility to enhance one’s quality of life. Mental health caregivers provide support for loved ones, and it can be helpful to consider some strategies that can be used to help both your overall well-being as well as your loved ones. Here is a closer look at a few caregiving strategies to help manage and treating their mental health.
