In Singapore culture, where filial piety is expected, the caregiver is often the forgotten piece of the healthcare puzzle. Our cameras were given a special access pass into a closed-door support session with four caregivers of family members with mental health concerns. This rarely seen footage reveals the challenges, emotional anxieties and stresses caregivers face, as well as the support they receive as they help their loved ones with mental health issues. Caregivers Alliance Limited (CAL) provides this judgement-free support. Find out what these ‘invisible heroes’ speak about when shame and stigma are left at the door.
