I am currently attending the NAMI Family-to-Family Program and this has enhanced my understanding of my diagnosis, socialized me, and broadened my perspective of others’ perceptions and struggles with their loved ones. It also shows me that there are advocates for mental illness.
Turning Point Counselling
The therapy I received from Turning Point Counselling has been instrumental in mine and my family’s recovery. We have more open communication and have implemented some strategies in the handouts in our household that has improved our overall well-being and understanding of one another.
