The inevitable experiences of stigma by association and high gender role conflict (GRC) among husband caregivers may predispose them to increased vulnerability to self-isolation, which is associated with depressive symptoms that may impair their ability to provide quality care to their wives. Despite their depressive symptoms, they continue caregiving until the demands of their wives’ medical needs reach a level that requires hospitalization. The proposed study will extend the literature on husband caregivers by ascertaining the degree to which the joint experience of high GRC and stigma by association affects their vulnerability to self-isolation. Examining this relationship will inform future research on preserving mental health in husband caregivers. It will also inform treatment by increasing the visibility of a vulnerable population in terms of encouraging clinicians to assess self-isolation in male caregivers.
