The Caregiver Mental Health Knowledge Sharing Series promotes the exchange of knowledge and resources with anyone who has a vested interest in caregiver mental health, including academic researchers, government representatives, policymakers, funders, and implementers. The Series’ Implementation Task Force has worked to identify 2 and summarize illustrative examples of entities that have addressed caregiver mental health in Sub-Saharan Africa. A request for case studies was disseminated broadly across a variety of academic networks, implementing organizational coalitions and listservs, and relevant professional contacts of the group.
The following case studies represent a sampling of case studies based on responses that were received. The Task Force aims to share key findings with implementing organizations as a means of informing and inspiring others to address the mental health of primary caretakers of children in their efforts. This sampling of case studies is captured here.
