Every mental health issue undeniably has an impact on the individual with the struggles, but there is also another burden that is often hidden from sight - the burden that is borne by the caregivers. While it is both a rewarding and central role, caregivers are also at higher risk of physical and mental health illnesses, financial issues, and work-related challenges. In our conversation with Amalina Davis, Head of Strategy & Advocacy at Thrive Well, and psychology professor Dr Alvin Ng, Advisor to Thrive Well, we highlight the experience of caregivers and what kind of support systems they need.
