For women caring for loved ones living with mental health issues, the challenges associated with balancing caring responsibilities and the rest of their lives are unique to those faced by other groups of carers. This report presents the preliminary findings of a 45 question survey completed by 80 women mental health carers in the ACT. The aim of the survey was to establish a quantitative and qualitative data set comprising information related to women mental health carer health and wellbeing, their social and support networks and their involvement in their local community and decision making processes.
