Redmond workshop will shine a light on mental illness for family members

June 23, 2018 by  

Redmond families who have a member living with a mental illness may wish to include a workshop that has been organized with them in mind in their plans for early this summer.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has prepared four hours of programming that will equip those who take part with knowledge, skills, and other tools that they can use to help support their loved ones. Along with this, they will also discover ways they can make sure they care for themselves as well.

The seminar, which will be led by a facilitator who has personal experience in the matter as a member of their own family is coping with a mental illness, will cover a variety of topics. There will be a discussion about various mental health issues, as well as how they are diagnosed and the treatment options for each of them. There will also be information provided about the recovery process and the importance of communication.

Along with the details about mental illness, there will be a review of coping strategies and also the supports that exist in the local area. Brochure printing can be used for an event like this to prepare informational publications that may be helpful to those who take part.

This information session will be on offer on June 30, and it will begin at 9:30 am. It will be hosted by the Together Center in Redmond.
