Experiences of Families: A Research Study
Date: May 4, 2021

This study titled “United we stand, divided we falter: Advancing a Family-Centred Agenda for Research on Caregiving” led by Dr. Charmaine Williams (P.I.) and Dr. Toula Kourgiantakis (Co-I), hopes to broaden the way to understand how family members cope with mental illness as one of many caring and caregiving tasks in families. The research hopes that sharing families’ stories will contribute to more responsive services, policies, and new resources for families. If you know a family who may be interested or if you are someone living with mental health concerns or a family member of someone with mental health concerns, contact Alexa Kirkland.
