In the words of family members & support practitioners; real stories from families who have faced and managed mental illness and recovery.
When a mental illness touches a family, each family member is often impacted and challenged to find a path forward toward recovery.
Finding Our Way shares the real life experiences, insights and hopes of families who have made this journey. Interviews include a range of family members, family support practitioners and community leaders to create a new 'family--to--family' peer resource, shared in their own words.
Interviews are from "The Journey Home" documentary, part of The Family Guide to Mental Health Recovery project. Chapters focus on one family's journey. Contributors include parents, siblings, sons, daughters, spouses. And even a Prime Minister; the Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau.
We invite you to experience journeys that will enlighten families, practitioners, educators, community organizations and health care peer support policy.
In addition to reading our book, you are also invited to connect to our online community at www.familyguidetomentalhealth.com — where you can view our documentary, watch family videos, read text resources and connect to community members.
