Canadian Mental Health Association's Family Program: Finding Hope and Building Strength is a support program for individuals who are caring for a loved one with a mental illness.

The program will run twice in Fall 2018 with two groups meeting each week as follows:

  • Thursday nights beginning October 11 to November 29 or
  • Tuesday nights beginning October 16 to December 4

About the Family Program

The Family Program is free and is organized as an eight week course with sessions once per week for 2 hours. The program was designed in 2017 by a team of CMHA staff, peer facilitators, and community experts. It is designed to be helpful, easy to understand, and engaging. Each week includes discussions, activities, and resources.

Week 1 to 4: How Do I Understand My Loved One's Illness?

Learn about the signs and symptoms of different mental illnesses, the various treatment options, and the community supports available for your loved one. Build skills around coping with a crisis, sharing your story, and de-escalation.

Week 5 to 8: What Is My Role In Recovery?

Learn about the aspect of the recovery process for you and your loved one, including medications, therapies, and lifestyle choices. Build skills to support yourself and your loved one such as self-care, communication, problem-solving, navigation, and advocacy.

Facilitators

All facilitators are volunteers who are trained to deliver the program. Facilitators also have a loved one with a mental illness.
