Assisting Families

Assisting Families is a suite of mental health workshops specifically designed for friends and family members of people living with mental illness.  These workshops are run in a relaxed and caring environment that values the lived experience of carers of people with mental illness.  Families can build on their knowledge and skills and enjoy the support of others in similar situations.
