Family-to-Family Class

A free 12-session educational program for family, significant others and friends of people living with mental illness. It is a designated evidenced-based program.

  • Developing the confidence and stamina to provide support with compassion
  • Finding and using local support and services
  • Up-to-date information on mental health conditions and how they affect the brain

What People Are Saying

“Before I took the course, I felt alone and overwhelmed dealing with my daughter’s mental illness. By taking this course, I have met others who are going through the same things I am and have learned about many resources that I never knew existed.”

“I thought my wife and I knew just about everything there is to know about the system and the illness. Boy, were we wrong. Without a doubt, this is the best support course I have had the privilege of taking part in, bar none.”
