Design of Web-based Support Systems in Less Structured Contexts - the Case of Young Carers
Mikael Elf*, Ingela Skärsäter*, Lilas Ali*, Barbro Krevers*

Background It has been suggested that at least 4% in a given population of young people are young carers (YC), providing substantial support to diseased family members. Many of them have little or no help from society, partly due to societal neglect of this group and partly due to barriers for help seeking, such as shame, stigma and distrust in health and social care resources (HSCR). The group addressed in this abstract, YCs aged 16-25 and supporting someone with mental illness, may find th...

Ingela Skärsäter*, Lilas Ali*, Mikael Elf*, Barbro Krevers*

Several young carers of persons with mental illness shoulder great responsibility. They are vulnerable and at risk ...
