Family Support fosters networking and peer support among family members or loved ones of those living with a serious mental illness. Family can be defined as partners, parents, children, siblings and/or friends of an individual living with serious mental illness.
Family support workers have lived experience with supporting a family member or loved one with mental illness. The worker can assist with system navigation, boundary setting, instilling hope, self-care, advocacy, resource connections, general listening and skill development. Groups offer opportunities to meet people with similar challenges helping to nurture feelings of strength and togetherness.
In partnership with Grey Bruce Health Services – Owen Sound site, a family support worker can assist families who have a family member in ER or hospitalized in the Inpatient Psychiatry Department.
