We are parents, children, spouses, brothers and sisters, and friends of people with serious mental illness; as well as those persons themselves. We share one another's pain and we share one another's hope. We are working to build a better tomorrow for our loved ones and for ourselves.
Members help each other cope, and get through hard times. They share information and experiences with local services and professionals. A warm circle of friends offers support and hope.
