World Mental Health Day is not just about advocacy. It also provides an opportunity to empower people to look after their own mental health.
Are you caring for an elderly, ill, or disabled family member? This can be a demanding job and no one is equipped to do it alone. Caregivers may experience fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depression and these symptoms can be associated with “caregiver burnout”. Caregiver burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion. It may be accompanied by a change in attitude, from positive and caring to negative and unconcerned. Burnout can occur when caregivers don’t get the help they need.
