Besides immediate family, partners and friends are most likely to take on caregiving roles. But being in a relationship with someone who suffers from mental illness is complicated. How do you balance your relationship needs or even raising a family with caring for your partner? How can friends play a supporting role? Joëlle speaks with a married couple about how they balance caregiving, mental health, and supporting their long-term relationship. We also explore the role of friendship in caregiving relationships — and how friends can broach the subject of mental illness with their loved ones.
