Differences in perceived burden were investigated among black, Hispanic, and white groups of caregivers of adults with serious mental illness. 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, illness attributions). No statistically significant differences were found in perceived burden between Hispanic and white caregivers.
