Emotional and Mental Health of Carers needs to be a priority

Emotional and Mental Health of Carers needs to be a priority

In National Carers week, Life Strategist, author and mother of a young man living with autism, Sally Thibault. says many mothers take on the lion's share of caring for their children, often at the detriment of their own mental health.

In her book David's Gift, Sally honestly shares her own struggles, coping with the burden of having a special needs child. “It is imperative that all mothers of special needs children are given permission and support to care for their own mental and emotional health, and why understanding family and friends play such an important role"

Sally joined me on The Drive Home to discuss this topic.
