Abstract

Those who are close to a person who is suffering from a mental illness are also likely to experience a decline in their own health and quality of life. People who have mental illnesses inflict a significant amount of stress on their family and the people who care for them. This study's objective is to investigate the stresses that are imposed on caregivers as a direct result of their work with patients who are suffering from mental illness. The objective of this study is to put a numerical value on the amount of stress that is endured by individuals who provide care for patients suffering from mental illness. Design and Location: A tertiary care hospital located in the city of Karad; A descriptive survey approach was used; Easy sampling was utilised for data collecting What We Utilized and How We Used It A predetermined 4-point scale consisting of 22 questions was used to assess the levels of stress experienced by one hundred individuals who provided care for patients suffering from mental illness. Only twenty-seven percent (27%) of the caregivers in the sample are coping with light stress, whereas seventy-three percent (73%) of the caregivers in the sample are dealing with moderate stress. Because the levels of stress experienced by caregivers of people with mental illness range from low to moderate, it is important that measures be done to lessen the load they carry.
