Family Support Group Meetings

Family support group meetings provide a caring, supportive environment for families and friends who are impacted by mental illness. The meetings are devoted to sharing stories and sharing ways to cope with any mental illness.

Until further notice meetings will be held virtually on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. via Zoom video-conferencing.

Please let us know if you would like to join this group.

“ I moved to Nanaimo last year with my two adult disabled sons. Both are afflicted with severe and persistent Schizophrenia. My eldest son had been institutionalized in Manitoba for most of his adult life. Mental Health Recovery Partners Society-Central VI has provided me with much needed practical and emotional help and advice. I have benefited from the Family Support Group meetings now held via Zoom, and appreciate the fellowship and support provided by the leaders and other caregivers. In turn, this helps me better support my sons in their recovery journey.”
