If you are supporting, helping, or caring for someone in your life who is feeling anxious or depressed, these symptoms may be causing you some level of concern. You are not alone with these feelings.
Researchers at Everymind are seeking carers to help test the program by working through the modules and providing feedback.
We are looking to identify and assess the strengths and weaknesses of the program; its design, content and usability. Feedback you provide will assist the research team in refining the online program for further testing. The testing period will begin in May 2020.
Recruitment for the testing of Minds Together for carers has now closed. If you would like to be kept up to date about the outcomes sign up for our mailing list here:
The Minds Together for carers program is an initiative of Everymind in partnership with the University of Newcastle which forms part of The Prevention Hub. Co-led by the Black Dog Institute and Everymind, and supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Health, The Prevention Hub is Australia’s first collaboration focusing on preventive research in depression and anxiety. This research has been approved by the Hunter New England Human Research Ethics Committee of Hunter New England Local Health District (Reference 2019/ETH13025).
Research shows that people who provide support and care for someone experiencing mental ill-health often experience increased demands on their time, energy, finances and emotions.
These increased demands can also mean that the person providing support and care are at risk of experiencing higher levels of worry, stress and feelings of being overwhelmed.
It is therefore important that carers have access to the practical and emotional support they need in a way that works for them. The Minds Together for carers program aims to provide you with this support in an online, self-guided format so you can access the program as and when you feel and have capacity to do so. The program guides participants through a series of interactive activities supported by factual information. It also features carer journeys presented through videos, carer stories and audio content.
