Hi My name is Yoonsuh, and I am a doctoral candidate in the counseling program of the George Washington University (GWU). I am a family caregiver too. I invite you to participate in my dissertation study that I am conducting under the direction of Dr. Richard Lanthier, Ph.D. at GWU. The purpose of this study is to examine the association between caregiver stress and symptoms of depression in adult mental health caregivers who:
- are aged 18 or above
- are living in the United States
- have provided unpaid care at any time in the last 12 months for a relative with a mental health issue and an accompanying functional impairment (the mental health condition should be primary to the secondary physical condition)
- have helped with arranging or providing transportation, shopping, housework, preparing meals, managing finances, giving medicines or injections, or arranging services
- and have helped their relative with bathing or showering, getting to and from the toilet, get out of beds or chairs, dressing, dealing with incontinence or diapers, or feeding them
Your participation may provide you with a great opportunity to share your caregiving journey, but it may also bring us a better understanding of your experience. Your participation has the potential to positively impact other caregivers, prospective caregivers, and others. We will not collect individual-identifiable information about you or someone you care for during this study. You may contact the principal investigator, Dr. Richard Lanthier at firstname.lastname@example.org or the primary contact or lead researcher, Yoonsuh Moh at email@example.com Please click the link below for more information or to take the survey: https://survey.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0BqhmFVt7JWWvMp Thank you very much in advance for your consideration.
