PEREA-BAENA, José Manuel; SANCHEZ-GIL, Luisa María; CALZADO LUENGO, María Josefa  and  VILLANUEVA CALVERO, Esther. Social support and burden's caregiver in a children's Mental Health Unit. Index Enferm [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.3, pp.166-170. ISSN 1699-5988.

Parental care for a child with mental disorder generates stress and coping difficult. Many studies have associated burden's caregiver with factors such social support and child factor such child behaviour problems and severity of disability. This study employed a cross-sectional design to verify the influence of the social support, family support and severity of disorder in the caregiver's burden. Of a whole of 96 patients, 83 mothers and 55 parents have taken part. Results showed major burden in the mother, a negative relation between social support and burden and an influence of the severity of disorder in caregiver's burden.
