Help-Seeking Behaviors and Service Use for Mental Health in East Asian American Informal Caregivers of Persons Living with Dementia

Are you an East Asian American adult caregiver of persons living with dementia? Are you also an immigrant or a child of immigrants from an East Asian country? If you meet these two, you can participate in this caregiver study!

We aim to explore how East Asian American caregivers of persons with dementia seek help and use services for their own negative emotions and mental health. If you are in this study, you will complete online surveys and a 1- or 2-hour individual interview one time in-person, via video call, or by phone. By participating in this study, you may relieve your stress or find a possible solution while sharing your experiences seeking help for your mental health. Moreover, you may perceive the importance of caring for your own mental health by reminding yourself about your mental health status and sharing experiences seeking help. Participant privacy will be carefully protected.

If you have any questions or want additional information about this study, please do not hesitate to contact us!
