The Schizophrenia Society of Ontario (SSO) is hosting a workshop on June 22nd, offering specialty skills training to professionals who work with families caring for a loved one affected by a mental illness or addiction.
Participants will learn how to build family member service strengths, and techniques to help them become more confident in assisting their loved ones in their journey of recovery. A panel of family members will share their experiences in caring for themselves and their loved ones. The topic of professionals taking care of themselves, in order to be more fully available to their clients, will also be explored.
