- Problems with the care process of people with mental disorders by family caregivers never lead to concrete solutions. Family support is one of the determinants of the successful recovery of a patient’s condition because it reflects the family’s efforts in accompanying patients undergoing their daily lives. This study aims to determine various factors that correlate with the support of family caregiver for family members suffering from mental disorders. Families who accompanied the patients while undergoing outpatient care were sampled, totaling 144, determined using a non probability sampling technique with a purposive sampling method. The results showed the majority of family support for sufferers is still lacking, there is a relationship of age, level of education, knowledge and work status with family support but there is no correlation between sex caregiver with support provided by the family. It is recommended that families pay more attention to sufferers in biological, psychological, social and spiritual aspects.
