Objective: This research aimed to measure the effects of providing family psychoeducation (FPE) therapy and care decisions without pasung (CDWP) to families of mentally ill patients. Method: This research used quasi-experimental pretest–posttest design with a control group consisting of 72 families divided into two groups using the purposive sampling technique. The intervention groups were given FPE and CDWP. The measurements were conducted three times using the Zarit Burden Interview. Result: The study demonstrated that family burden was significantly lower among those who received the combination of the two therapies compared to only family psychoeducation (p < 0.05). Those therapies decreased the family burden into the low category. Conclusion: The combination of these therapies provides an effective method for overcoming the burden on families who are treating family members with mental illness.
