We’re here to help . . .
Mental illness is comprised of biological, psychological and social components. Although not curable, recovery is possible with comprehensive treatment. Educated and trained family members and friends, working with trained professionals, can have a positive impact on their loved one’s recovery. Unfortunately, little in life prepares the average person to deal with this devastating illness, particularly when it first occurs. We’re here to support you in your efforts by offering education, support and comradery with others who understand.
