Psychological Distress and Quality of Life of the Care givers of the Persons with Mental Disabilities
Since time immemorial, mental disorders have affected the lives of individuals all over the world. Their treatment, cure and care have been of concern for the patient themselves, and also their caregivers, society and government. Humans live in a family setup and when one falls ill, it is the family members who are automatically assigned to take care of the patient during his illness. They, as family members feel a lot of burden and stress in managing the individual diagnosed with the disorder. Also, it was found that social support and behavioural ways such as physical activities mediated the impact of chronic strain.
