Support for Families & Caregivers

Family and Caregiver Mental Health Support

Programs for families and caregivers who are supporting someone with a mental illness

Suffering from a mental illness can make you feel helpless. Watching someone you care about suffer with mental illness can make you feel helpless too. Our supports can help caregivers get off the sidelines and become an active participant in mental illness by empowering you with education, resources and an action plan to support those you care about to make informed decisions.

You are not alone, here are the mental health support programs for families and caregivers we offer:

“From the first night I attended the Family and Caregiver Group I got a feeling from the support staff and other attendees that these people have lived through this and get what I feel. I didn’t have to try and explain the hardships of mental illness- they had also lived it- so they knew! I honestly felt supported for the first time ever!”
