Family Support

Family members play an important role in supporting the recovery of individuals with mental illness and co-occurring disorders. When family members are educated about psychiatric illnesses or co-occurring disorders, they are better able to identify symptoms, recognize warning signs of relapse, support treatment goals and promote recovery.

Coping with the unknowns that come with watching a loved one struggle with mental illness can feel confusing and scary, particularly when compounded with sadness and grief, fear, anger, isolation or guilt – all normal feelings. It’s important to know that you are not alone; there are answers and that there is hope of recovery.
