Call for Participants--Caregivers Needed for Online Survey, CAMH

Are you caring for someone with a long-term health or mental health condition?  We need your help to test an online survey.  The survey should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

At the end of the survey, you will be able to view some preliminary results.  As well, you will have the opportunity to select a caregiver organization to receive an honorarium payment of $5 on behalf of the Family/Friend Caregiver Survey.

Goal of the survey:  To learn more about the benefits and challenges of caregiving.  This information will help inform health care decision-making in Ontario, with the goal of improving caregiver supports and services.

Who can participate:  Anyone who has provided unpaid help in the past 12 months to family, friends, or neighbours because of a long-term health condition, physical or mental disability, mental illness, substance use/addiction condition, or problems related to aging.  A long-term health condition is one that has lasted or is expected to last 6 months or longer. This includes if the person you have cared for has died in the past 12 months.
