Caregiving for Mental Illness

My name is Tayler Jensen. I am completing a research project under the direction of Dr. Kim Shifren for the honor’s thesis in psychology program.

Was your loved one diagnosed with major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, anxiety and panic disorder, or another severe mental illness? Have you provided care for your relative for at least two months?

Cognitive Adaptation and Posttraumatic Growth among HIV Caregivers

Are you a caregiver? My name is Erin Norton, I am a Clinical-Psychology doctoral student at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, LA campus. I am investigating cognitive processes and growth among caregivers. To participate you must be 18-years or older, a current caregiver of an individual with HIV or AIDS, able to read and understand English, provide ongoing activities of daily living or instrumental activities of daily living, do not care for more than one recipient, and not solely a nurse, social worker, case manager, etc.

Leisure Participation and Quality of Life of Informal Caregivers

Do you take care of a loved one with dementia? Would you like to share your experience? We are conducting a research study on caregivers’ quality of life and satisfaction with leisure activities.  The survey takes 15-20 minutes and will remain anonymous. If you choose to participate you will have the choice to enter a raffle for a $30 Amazon gift card.

Participants must be over the age of 18 and currently act as an unpaid caregiver to an individual who has Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia.  Thank you!
