Mental Illness Support Group for Friends and Family
When someone is living with a serious mental illness, their family and friends may also be affected.
At Sharp Grossmont Hospital, we understand that facing mental illness in a loved one can be confusing and challenging. Our Family and Friends Support Group provides support, education and resources to help people with loved ones enrolled in our inpatient and outpatient programs.
Participants learn about mental illness and what to expect based on their loved one’s specific diagnosis. The group provides a safe environment for patient caregivers, family members and support people to ask questions and share their experiences. Participants also learn healthy ways to help their friend or family member, as well as what resources are available.
Registration is not required prior to attending. If you have a question or concern, please contact the program manager by providing your name and email address in the "Learn More" box above. Someone will contact you within two business days.
