A profile of Australian mental health carers, their caring role and service needs
This study aimed to provide a detailed profile of mental health carers for planning purposes, using a national household survey, the 2012 Survey of Disability, Ageing and Carers (SDAC). Specifically the study sought to:
(1) estimate the number of mental health carers in Australia;
(2) describe their characteristics and caring role;
(3) quantify their service use and unmet service needs; and
(4) compare the caring roles and service needs of mental health
carers and other disability carers.
