Research on identity of those who support someone in with a mental illness

A new research study by Cassie Lovelock will be looking into the identity of those who support someone in their life with a mental illness. Cassie is PhD student at the London School of Economics; before that she was a carer for her sister who lived with schizoaffective disorder.

The aim of her study is to learn in what ways supporting a person impacts a carer and their identity. As well as what their day to day supporting that person looks like. This will be done via an hour(ish) long interview with her via zoom or teams (or telephone if that is easier for the carer). It will take part at a time convenient for unpaid carers.

To take part the carer must be over the age of 18 and able to give informed consent. Unpaid Carers will be paid £30 for the interview – or thy can request a voucher to the same value.

If any carer other there is willing to make part – or would like more information before deciding please email Cassie on c.lovelock@lse.ac.uk or you can text/whatsapp her on 07429428992.
