Young People providing care during the COVID-19 Pandemic

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Mental Health & Wellbeing

We will conduct in-depth case studies with 10-15 young carers between the ages of 16 and 25. The exploratory case study approach will allow us to examine caregiving in the context of the COVID-19 crisis and how young carers’ experiences unfold over time during this crisis. This will be done by conducting three virtual (phone/Zoom) interviews over a 6-month period. Participants will also be completing 2 separate week-long diary studies.
