Concerned Persons Support
Due to the complexities of understanding
and supporting a friend or family member with a mental health condition, and
in light of recent events which have increased the awareness of mental
health issues, Behavioral Health Services is adding a second group to
the Concerned Persons Group series. In addition to the Concerned
Persons Group - Substance Abuse, a new group is being formed entitled
Concerned Persons - Mental Health, and is offered to help decrease stigma
and increase knowledge about mental health for our community. Since there
is sometimes an overlap between substance abuse and mental health
conditions, both groups will be held at the same time in the same suite but
in different rooms for coordination of care and support. Participants
may go from one to the other for various sessions depending on their needs.
Concerned Persons - Mental Health
Are you struggling, stressed and
feeling alone in coping with a family member or friend with a mental health
you need help understanding or supporting them? This
educational support group focuses on the elements of mental
health conditions that can create challenges for diagnosed
individuals, their families and their friends. In a safe and
caring setting, you will learn about symptoms and behaviors of different
mental health conditions and effective ways to support and interact with
your diagnosed friend or family member. You will receive ongoing
support by talking with others facing similar challenges. Weekly
meetings held Wednesdays at 6:00 pm. For more information, call
