TA Coalition Webinar: Challenges and Solutions for Mental Health Caregivers

An estimated 8.4 million Americans provide care to an adult living with a mental health condition. Their critical role as caregivers comes with insight into barriers to services, supports, and integration that keep their loved ones struggling and isolated from their communities. This webinar discusses the challenges faced by caregivers including structural issues that limit recovery from the caregiver perspective. Based on two reports with responses from over 2,000 caregivers, presenters will present compelling data, stories and solutions for families and leaders to empower caregivers and adults living with mental health conditions.
