Further exploration of the Young Carers Perceived Stress Scale: identifying a benefit-finding dimension

Objectives: A substantial number of children are involved in informal caregiving and make a significant contribution to health care delivery. While this places high levels of demand on their coping resources, there is some evidence that these children find benefit in their caring role.
