Family Support Group Meetings

You Are Not Alone

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. You will find others who are walking a similar journey as you. We do not seek to provide answers, but to gather a community to support one another through crisis and the regular parts of caring for loved ones.

Meetings are held virtually every second Saturday at 10 AM via Zoom.

You can contact us at contact@mhrpci.com or leave a message at 250-760-6031 to confirm the next date and get connected. You can also sign-up for our regular newsletter for more information about MHRP programs and a direct link to the support 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.”
