For family and friends of someone living with mental illness only

These are interactive workshops and space is limited–this gives our facilitators the chance to personally address your questions and concerns. You must register in advance. If you register and do not attend, you may be taking a spot away from someone in need.

Coping Skills

We cope all the time. Awareness of how we cope can increase our ability to notice when we engage in defensive patterns and move towards practicing new skills that will provide us with more safety, peace, and general wellbeing.

Boundaries & Setting Limits

Caregiving relationships challenge everyone involved in discovering what’s acceptable and what’s not acceptable within the unique dynamic. The aim of this workshop is to identify these limits and learn to communicate the boundaries necessary to protect both the relationship and the caregiver.

Acceptance & Letting Go

Loss is an inevitable and painful part of life. In the relationship between a family and their loved one with mental illness, experiencing loss can be complicated. In this workshop, we will identify and name losses, situate participants within their own grieving processes in relation to loss, and learn about acceptance which leads to healing opportunities.
