What is a Mental Health Caregiver?

  • Someone who gives emotional, financial, hands-on day-to-day practical support to a person with a mental health condition. A few examples of caregiver duties are preparing meals, picking up prescriptions, medication reminders, transporting to doctor visits, comforting the loved one, paying bills etc.. the list is almost limitless. Caregivers play a vital part in the recovery of loved ones living with mental health problems and illnesses.
  •  According to the National Alliance on Meal Illness (NAMI) at least 8.4 million people in the U.S. provide care to an adult with a mental or emotional health issue.
  • Caregivers of adults with mental or emotional health issues spend an average o 32 hours
    per week providing unpaid care. 
  • Nearly 50 percent of caregivers see their role as having a negative effect on their own physical and mental health.

The Mission

Who We Are

Aaron’s House was founded by Pamela Robinson following the death of her son Aaron Keith Robinson, who passed away at the age of 30 during a psychotic episode; Aaron was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at the age of 18. When her son was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, Pamela and her family were clueless about the illness, and spent several years trying to learn about the illness while navigating through the chaotic mental health system only to become frustrated, and discouraged with the inadequacy of the system.

Pamela, Aaron’s House’s dedicated board members and a team of professionals are passionate about educating the community and spreading mental health awareness throughout the community so that no one has to go through the turmoil, and pain that she experienced during her son’s journey.

The goal of Aaron’s House is to ensure that mental health caregivers in the community and throughout the various states know that they have a safe-haven to discuss their concerns
confidentially and without judgment, to obtain advice from a mental health professional, and to know that Aaron’s House is here for them, often times the journey is better with someone else.
