CAMH Knowledge Exchange
Discovering, sharing and applying new knowledge
Family members are often the primary support for people who have substance use and/or mental health problems. We know that these caregivers are likely to experience significant physical, emotional, social and spiritual stress. Although there are a growing number of interventions designed to help and support family members, many agencies do not see this as their mandate, and—if they do—it is secondary to the job of working with the person diagnosed with substance use and/or mental health problems.
