FAMILIES in Residence

2019 Prince George & Quesnel

Support and Education for FAMILIES

The Family Alliance on Mental Illness – Leaders in Involvement, Empowerment & Support (FAMILIES) in Residence program began in the fall of 2018 located in local hospitals and continues to be a success.

FAMILIES in Residence provides support and education to ALL family members (parents, partners, siblings, adult children) affected by ANY mental illness (schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar, depression, anxiety and addiction).

All FAMILIES in Residence have lived experience as family members. They know what it feels like to have a loved one with a mental illness. They also know what to say to other family members when faced with a mental health crisis, what to do to cope with daily challenges and role model healthy living following extensive experience and training in the Guidelines for the Practice of Family Peer Support.

FAMILIES in Residence

FAMILIES in Residence will ease the family member’s journey through crisis, learning to cope and moving into action.
