Looking To Speak With Young Caregivers!

young-caregivers

Today we are helping spread the word for a PhD student looking to speak with young adult caregivers. Check out her announcement!

Are you aged 18-25? Do you provide unpaid care, support, or assistance to someone with a health condition or disability? If so, I want to hear your story!

My PhD research at the University of Birmingham is focusing on identity development in young adult caregivers in the United States and United Kingdom. This research seeks to understand the ways a young adult’s identity may have been shaped through caregiving, and to learn more about how to better support young adult caregivers as they transition into adulthood. Participating in this research is a great way for young adult caregivers to share their story to a warm and friendly listening ear whilst also providing information on what support they need. To learn more about my research and my own caregiving story, please watch the video link.

Are you:
–  18-25 years old
–  Providing unpaid care, support, and assistance to a family member (s) with a health condition such as a physical or learning disability, mental illness, and/or other conditions that require support (e.g. substance misuse, HIV/AIDS, dementia and Alzheimer’s, and injuries sustained through military service).

If so, please get in touch!
