This topic will also be part of the the first Swiss national patient congress, held in September. Part of the concerned relatives are also minors and young people, who are called ”Young Carers”. Because they have special needs, there is research being done in a lot of different countries, as an example Australia and in the UK, to understand how we can support them.
This work focuses on the mental well-being of Young Carers and concerns itself with the development of a game, in which methods for better handling of stress and frustration should be presented to Young Carers. With this, the Young Carer should be able to reflect and develop strategies for better handling of stress.
