  • may be of any age;
  • will commonly be actively involved in caring for and supporting a person with mental health issues, with this role not necessarily being a static role but rather a role that is capable of fluctuation over time according to the needs of the person with mental health issues and the carer;
  • will commonly have their life impacted by the wellbeing of the person with mental health issues, and commonly undertakes for the care of and support of a person with mental health issues in a voluntary capacity and not as part of their career or employment.
