The Framily and Mental Health Lab is led by Dr. Ranak Trivedi. "Framily" include family members and friends who are like family. Our lab focuses on disease management by patients and the framily who care for them. More specifically, the lab aims to identify barriers and facilitators of chronic illness self-management, understand dyadic relationships between patients and caregivers in managing chronic illnesses, developing framily centered self-management programs, and create culturally attuned approaches to disease management.

Take Care Community Initiative

The Take Care Community is a site that houses resources for family caregivers submitted by family caregivers and those in the family caregiver community. We are looking for sites, services, supports and research that can be beneficial to family caregivers in their caregiving journey. With a generous donation from Genworth, we are also gathering resources fo family caregivers who have experienced grief and/or loss.

Empowering Caregivers!

Caregiver Advocacy Program

The Caregiver Advocacy Program is a series of virtual workshops that will empower caregivers to learn about lawmaking and caregiving-related policies, how to tell their caregiving stories to legislators, and advocate for change. Caregivers don't need to be policy experts to take part – in fact, we hope that you're not!

Please consider taking part in our new program, or sharing the information with someone you think would be a good fit!
