Mental Health America (MHA), in conjunction with its partners at the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) and The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), is pleased to present an important national survey report: On Pins and Needles; Caregivers of Adults with Mental Illness. Reflecting the experiences, frustrations and perceptions that caregivers recount in accessing treatment and supports for the person cared for; this report also includes caregivers’ assessment of their own struggles, and support needs. The report contains strong policy recommendations, such as screening, and parity for a full range of integrated services and supports including peers supports and community inclusion.
Mental Health America understands that racism undermines mental health. Therefore, we are committed to anti-racism in all that we do. This means that we pledge to work against individual racism, interpersonal racism, and institutional racism in all their forms.
