Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to develop a psychoeducation and supportive program that aims to address the needs of Vietnamese caregivers of relatives with severe mental illnesses. A review of the literature indicated that caregivers are greatly affected by stress as they provide care to their loved ones on a daily basis. The goal of the program is to increase Vietnamese caregivers’ knowledge about mental illness, to improve caregivers’ coping skills due to stress that they endure daily, to provide therapeutic support in group among other caregivers, and to decrease the level of burden of caregivers. This proposed program will be linked with the Orange County Association for Vietnamese Mental Health Awareness & Support, a nonprofit organization that currently supports Vietnamese caregivers of relatives with severe mental illnesses.
