National Family Caregivers Month Mental Health Resources

November is National Family Caregivers Month.

Caregiving can often have a significant impact on the life of the caregiver in more ways than one. It can make maintaining physical and mental health more difficult and may put a strain on work and social life. It’s important for caregivers to take care of their own mental health.

Mental Health America has compiled tools and resources for caregivers to  help them maintain their mental health and better serve loved ones with mental illness.
