A vast majority of persons diagnosed with mental disorders live with their families in most of the low- and middle-income countries. There is a growing evidence of the adverse impact of caregiving on the caregivers. There is a need to recognize the significant contribution of caregivers. Specific programs to improve skills of self-care for emotional health, skills of caregiving, social welfare, and legislative support to caregivers will make them more effective and further decrease the demand on mental health services. This is an urgent need. India has the opportunity to show the way through innovative training, legislative, and other measures.
