Circle of Care

The National Alliance for Caregiving is pleased to present Circle of Care: A Guidebook for Mental Health Caregivers, developed with generous support from the Alkermes Inspiration Grant Program. The Guidebook emerged from On Pins and Needles: Caregivers of Adults with Mental Illness, a national study on mental health caregiving conducted with the assistance of the National Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health America and released in February 2016.

Like our other resources for family caregivers, Circle of Care is designed to guide unpaid friends, family, and neighbors who care for someone with a mental health condition. The fact sheets are intended to assist these caregivers with finding help for the specific challenges identified in the On Pins and Needles study.

As we continue to work to support caregivers, we welcome your feedback and ideas on this work and others. It is our mission to advance family caregiving through research, innovation, and advocacy so that families across the spectrum of health and long-term care can have an improved quality of life.
