Family Orientation for Families of Adult Clients in Residential and Day Treatment
Families and primary supporters are essential for a client’s recovery from mental illness. Skyland Trail is a leader in helping families play a positive role, and also in providing support as they cope with a loved one’s illness.
Family Orientation is a one-day seminar designed to provide families of new clients practical information about the process and experience of recovery. Our goal is to welcome you to Skyland Trail and to help you feel more prepared for the challenges and improvements ahead.
- Our continuum of care and how your loved one may move through it
- Tips on how families can help a loved one recover
- How we communicate with families
- Programs and resources available to families
You will also have an opportunity to meet our staff, ask your questions and get to know other families.
