Family-To-Family Classes begin August 25
Led by trained family members, more than 300,000 people have participated in the program that helps caregivers understand and support individuals with serious mental disorders and cope with the stress of caregiving. Participants will learn about medications, communication techniques, handling crises, problem-solving skills, recovery, advocacy, and accessing community support.
Family-to-Family includes up-to-date facts about clinical depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress. Those who attend F2F gain valuable information, insight and understanding of their loved one that many call “life-changing.”
