Online via ZOOM. Meets weekly for 8 weeks. One in five people in Delaware and Morrow Counties experiences a mental health condition, but even that number doesn’t measure the impact of mental illness. A mental health condition affects more than just the person who has a diagnosis. Families and friends also experience the impact of their loved one’s mental health as it impacts relationships, roles and responsibilities.
This free educational class provides family members and friends with information to help them better understand their loved one’s diagnosis and its impact. Through the course, we’ll discuss the biological basis of mental health conditions, treatment options, as well as practice communication skills that can help improve your relationship with your loved one.
