Family Support Initiative

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 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.
