Mental Health Commission of Canada Guidelines for Family Caregiving applied to Schizophrenia

Dr. Ella Amir, Executive Director of AMI-Québec since 1990, http://amiquebec.org/, leads one of Québec’s principal resources for families struggling to cope with mental illness, including schizophrenia. She explains her work with the Mental Health Commission of Canada as it relates to schizophrenia. She highlights the relevance to schizophrenia of the Commission’s publications “Taking the Caregiver Guidelines Off the Shelf: Mobilization Toolkit” and “National Guidelines for a Comprehensive Service System to Support Family Caregivers of Adults with Mental Health Problems and Illnesses”. She highlights challenges that can arise for family caregivers whose family members living with schizophrenia are receiving care from a psychiatry department in a hospital, in working with police services, and in taking care of themselves. She says what she thinks about Schizophrenia Community Radio offering family caregivers opportunities to describe their experiences with the Mobilization Toolkit.
