It is a fun supportive environment for attendees to learn about their parent’s illness and also learn coping strategies to manage the stress that often occurs in their family.
The conference follows a similar format from year to year; a family panel which allows attendants to hear other persons stories about what it is like to care for someone with a mental health issue, and learn some ideas and tips for coping and staying healthy. This is followed by a key note speaker and an expert in an area of mental health or self-care. The afternoon consists of breakout sessions that talk about various specific diagnoses and provide specific information and treatment options; attendants have the opportunity to choose the topics that they want to learn about.
1. To provide families with information about mental illness including treatment options.
2. To liaise with community resources.
3. To provide a forum to foster mutual support among workshop participants.
