    In Conversation with Wendy and Nicole

    The burden of mental illness in Australia is incredibly high and at the heart of the response are unpaid carers, providing daily support to people living with mental illness. This type of caring can have all sorts of different impacts and can often lead to poor mental health, physical health and severe financial stress for the carers themselves.

    In today’s episode of the Care Mosaic, you are going to hear about how this plays out in daily life for Wendy and Nicole, both of whom care for someone with a mental illness.

    In Conversation with Peter and Julie

    This episode of the Care Mosaic explores the assumption that when a loved one goes into formal care, such as a nursing home or supported living accommodation, the caring role stops.

    However, this is often not the case.

    Today we are speaking to Peter and Julie, two carers who know firsthand that a caring role does not simply stop because their care recipient has gone into full time care – their role only changes.
