Investigated differences in perceived burden among Black, Hispanic, and White groups of caregivers (aged 22-82 yrs) of adults (aged 18-65 yrs) with serious mental illness. Data were collected through structured interviews. Controlling for sociodemographic characteristics and caregiving-related stressors, Black caregivers tended to report less burden than Whites, a result not explained by protective mechanisms (social support, religious involvement, or illness attributions). No statistically significant differences were found in perceived burden between Hispanic and White caregivers. Results show that caregiver burden is highly responsive to caregiving-related stressors.
