Prince Rupert Strengthening Families Together

June 19 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

SFT Poster for PR

Strengthening Families Together provides knowledge, support, and tools for families to better cope with mental illnesses together.

Participating families and caregivers from the Haida Gwaii can learn facts about psychosis, schizophrenia, mood disorders, and other severe and persistent mental illnesses; and the impact of stigma. They gain information about treatments, side effects, and the impact of substance use. Sessions cover communication skills, stress management tools, self-care planning, crisis planning, and family advocacy.

Participants also learn about the mental health system in BC — including how it works and who is involved, as well as what happens when a person becomes involved with the criminal justice system. Through discussion and group exercises, families build supportive connections with others who share similar experiences and learn about how to access BCSS Family Support Groups available across the province.
