FAMILY Support Groups

Learn the facts about mental illness and allow yourself to express your feelings.  Our support groups are an opportunity to share your story or to listen for ideas about how to improve your own situation with mental illness in your midst.  You will acquire new tools and learn new coping skills to help you understand and work with a relative who has mental illness.   Learn from the people who have experience.  Other families have resources and ideas for recovery that you may not have not have thought about.
