Having a mental illness can at times be a lonely, bewildering experience. Knowing how to help a loved one can be just as hard. But there is hope.
This is an 8-session education program offering information, understanding and support. Classes are free, including all materials, and are led by trained volunteer instructors, all of whom have a family member with a mental illness.
Among the topics for this program are: symptoms of mental illness; brain biology and medications; communications skills; rehabilitation; and taking care of ourselves.
