Murdoch University invite you to participate in a survey examining the relationship between gratitude and the level of burden experienced by unpaid family or friends who care for people with mental illness. This is a forerunner to the development of a resource that could be designed to lessen the burden that carers of people with mental illness experience.
Why are we examining the relationship between gratitude and carer burden?
Studies have shown that high levels of burden reduce caregivers’ wellbeing. Studies have also shown that feelings of gratitude lead to higher levels of wellbeing. However, it is unknown if being more inclined towards experiencing gratitude reduces carer burden.
Why have you been approached to participate in this study?
This study seeks to capture the views of unpaid family or friends who care for someone with a mental illness.
