Perceived stigma, strain, and mental health among caregivers of veterans with traumatic brain injury.
Phelan SM, Griffin JM, Hellerstedt WL, Sayer NA, Jensen AC, Burgess DJ, van Ryn M. Perceived stigma, strain, and mental health among caregivers of veterans with traumatic brain injury. Disability and health journal. 2011 Jul 1; 4(3):177-84.
Our findings suggest that perceived discrimination and stigma experienced by caregivers of individuals with TBI are stressors that may lead to poor caregiver mental health outcomes. In order to promote both caregiver and care recipient health, we suggest that mental health support services consider these important stressors.
