Adversity to advocacy: the lives and hopes of mental health carers.

The Mental Health Council of Australia has recently released Adversity to advocacy: the lives and hopes of mental health carers. This report outlines the difficulties and concerns of Australians caring for someone with a mental illness and is Australia's first ever comprehensive national survey of mental health carers. It reveals 15 key issues identified by mental health carers, which are all based directly on the stories,experiences and ideas from over 1500 carers who attended a series of workshops delivered by the Council.
