Support of Family Carers of Patients with Complex Mental Disorders in Romania



Since 2017 IMEHPS has been active in supporting family carers of patients with complex mental disorders in Romania (Cluj) together with the Asociatia Transilvania Pentru Promovarea Bolnavilor Psihici. IMEHPS has developed and carried out a survey of the burden of family carers of patients with complex disorders and finalized a report, and has organized two public conferences in Cluj in 2018 to raise awareness for the needs of these family carers. A further conference will take place in May 2019. A self-help family group has been facilitated which is meeting monthly in Cluj.
