Support for Families

When someone you love is experiencing a mental health concern, it can change your life in unexpected ways. Families often feel isolated and alone as they navigate unfamiliar systems of care while trying to understand their loved one’s behavior. Talking with someone who has gone through similar experiences can give you hope and help you find a path forward.

We know firsthand what it’s like to care for someone with a mental health issue, and we use this experience to help others in this situation. We give you the emotional and practical support you need to focus on helping your loved one, while taking care of yourself.

Some of the mental health issues we have experience with include:

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Major depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Schizoaffective disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders
