The focus of the group is to support everyone affected by mental illness. This includes the person diagnosed (Consumer) and, Family and Friends.
At each meeting everyone benefits from hearing about the experiences, challenges and successes of both groups during a combined session. The meeting then splits into three separate groups: Consumers; Young Adult Consumers; Family and Friends. This format provides everyone with a confidential, safe environment in which to discuss the difficult issues they face and develop ways to cope with them.
