TOKYO — One out of some 20 high school students in the east Japan prefecture of Saitama said they were providing care for family members, including those with illnesses or disabilities, a survey by a research team have found.

Children under the age of 18 who take care of their family members with chronic illnesses or disabilities, or mental health issues are referred to as “young carers” and experts have warned if these children become overburdened with caregiving tasks, it could interfere with their school work as well as their mental and physical health.
