Rosario's story

As someone who recently was a Young Adult Carer and still cares for a parent with a mental illness, I know it is hard for other young people in this situation to have 'me time'. Balancing education or work is hard let alone doing this on top of caring with little time to recharge or means choosing between caring and other goals and enjoying life.

I am writing this blog intending to share my story and point of view to help Young Adult Carers and to help others understand and better support them.
