For patients on the journey to mental wellness, families are integral to the therapeutic and healing process. And to facilitate that process, we offer a Family Education Day nearly every two months.
During the day, families learn about psychiatric, behavioral and addictive disorders and elevate their understanding of treatment approaches and how to strengthen understanding within the family. Equally important is the opportunity to meet other families and share experiences.
The Family Education Day was very informative. It changed my attitude and way of communicating with my kids and family. Thank you!
