Video: Who Cares — A Film for Carers

Who Cares — A Film for Carers is a short film highlighting how mental illness can effect family members who often become carers themselves. It can be overwhelming and these films want to spread the word that carers are not alone in their struggles. Each section is about half a dozen minutes.

  • Part One — The film begins with a mother whose son is at university and begins to have signs of a mental disorder. From then on, Fiona enters the world of the family caregiver for the mentally ill.
  • Part Two — Adam, 26, finds his wife becoming different woman. At first he thinks Sandra has the ‘flu.
  • Part Three — Seventeen year old Rachel observes that her mother’s depression was a long time in the making.
