Families Matter

Families Matter logo

 Families can be partners in care, rehabilitation, and recovery.

 When families are involved, individuals experience:

  • Decreased rates of hospitalization and relapse
  • Increased rates of recovery
  • An increased likelihood of following through with treatment choices

Families contribute by:

  • Advocating on behalf of their loved one
  • Help professionals see the person beyond their diagnosis
  • Provide support with activities of daily living

There is a Families Matter event hosted annually. More details to come when the next event is confirmed. 

Families are a source of hope and healing.

“There’s got to be somebody who is a believer, with a sense of hope, not just a provider of services.” – Family Member
