Informal carers of people with mental health problems receive little attention from both researchers and services. They constitute a neglected but extremely important population, whose care often prevents patients’ need for hospital admission and helps to sustain their life in the community. However, the price that carers pay for supporting their loved ones can be high in terms of their own levels of stress and burden. In the absence of support and often without outside help, they may struggle to comprehend mental illness and to navigate their way through the maze of various services. Their needs, particularly for emotional support, are rarely considered. The present thesis aims to address this gap in the literature, and hopefully to draw direct clinical implications for mental health services.
