This program was designed to provide culturally and linguistically relevant mental health education and support for Korean caregivers. The primary goal of this project was to help Korean caregivers increase knowledge and overall awareness of mental health issues of the Korean immigrant older adult population, focusing on how mental health issues are perceived and how they are treated in the United States. Additionally, this curriculum provides interactive activities and discussions to help caregivers develop proper caregiving skills, increase access to available resources in the community, and secure caregiver support to maintain their own physical and mental health. This program was designed based on an extensive literature review that was conducted to identify prevalent information and promising approaches for meeting the needs of Korean caregivers.
