This questionnaire is for you as a carer to talk about your own circumstances and needs, and not those of the person you care for. We recognise that carersâ€™ needs are closely linked with the needs of the person they care for, but this questionnaire has been designed to find out about YOUR circumstances and YOUR needs. All results will be analysed in order to get a clearer picture of the needs of carers of persons with mental health problem. It will also be helpful for the Schizophrenia Society of Canada to set out priorities for future actions to support these carers.
This questionnaire can be filled in by anyone who has a role in caring for someone with a mental health problem. You don’t have to be a person’s main carer or live at the same address as them.
