A guide for caregivers of people with mental illness

MHFA, Eds.: MHFA, (2009)


Mental illness can affect not only the life of the person with the illness, but also their close family, partners and friends. Significant people in a person’s life are often a source of support with the illness. However, family, partners and friends may be faced with a loved one’s mental illness without much information on ways to deal with it and its impact on their life. NOTE: This guide is NOT a replacement for medical advice and we strongly recommend that you or the person you care for discuss issues related to treatment with a clinician.

Hidden Burdens of Conflict

International Alert, Global Initiative on Psychiatry; London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, et al., (2017)


Some 32% of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Ukraine suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of the conflict in the east. Among the 2,203 respondents surveyed across Ukraine, the study also found a high prevalence of mental disorders such as depression (22%) and anxiety (17%), particularly among women. This has a significant effect on family and community relations, the ability to work or even do basic tasks such as walking. Moreover, the study noted that 74% of respondents in need of psychiatric care do not receive it, mainly due to a high cost of mental healthcare and medicine.
