FAMILY TO FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP

A confidential support group for families who have loved ones who are living with mental health issues. The group is lead by facilitators who have experience living with a loved one with mental health issues.


As a loved one of a person with mental health issues, you face unique challenges: complex family dynamics, social isolation and often unpredictable aspects of the illness.  It can be overwhelming.


Through the High Desert Mental Health Suport Group you can find hope and support by connecting with others who face similar challenges.

WHEN

The 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm (except holidays)
