NAMI Family to Family Education Program
The Family Support Network presents:
NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Family to Family Education Program
NAMI Family to Family is an 11-week program for those who have family members suffering from mental illness. Led by family-member facilitators, the NAMI course covers:
- Diagnostic criteria of common mental illnesses
- Our emotional response to the trauma of mental illness
- Biology of the brain, causes of mental illnesses, new research
- Listening/communicating techniques
- Understanding what it's like to have a mental illness
- Coping skills, handling crisis and relapse, self-care and family-care
- Finding community services and supports
- Advocacy, dealing with stigma and discrimination
Most of all, NAMI offers a confidential, safe place for people to learn and talk about mental illness in their family with others who understand, because we are all dealing with the same issues ourselves.
This program is provided free of charge by the Family Support Network.
When: begins Thurs. Sept. 21, 2017
Time: 7:00 pm. to 9:30 pm.
Where: Addictions and Mental Health Services

This September, We Celebrate Recovery
This September, communities from across Ontario, Canada, and the world, come together to celebrate the many pathways to recovery, reduce stigma, and foster hope for overcoming addiction.
This year is the 11th annual celebration of recovery in Ontario, with the first recovery awareness campaign held in October 2016. Since then, the movement has gained momentum, with over 15 communities in Ontario participating.
Recovery Month spreads the message that with the right services and supports, recovery from addiction is possible, and calls for addiction to be treated and funded the same way as other illnesses.
Recovery month is celebrated in many different ways, including events such as Recovery Breakfasts, rallies, social media awareness, and more. A key component of recovery month involves individuals sharing their personal stories about their recovery, and the positive impact it has had on their families, communities and workplaces.
