Assesing the usefulness of a cross-sectional descriptive health recovery programme within the socio-cultural project, "Quiscuaba", using a sample of 26 main carers revealed certain socio-demographic characteristics-the persistence of anxiety, depression and burden in these people, which were modified after treatment. Diagnosis tools like the Hamilton depression scale, the Zarit-Zarit burden scale, group dynamics and interviews provided data of interest since the work performed supposed the creation of a breathing space, so demonstrating its worth, with a minimum use of professional and voluntary resources and support. Participants called for it to become more widespread.
