Providing care to the family members with chronic mental illness may result�in feelings �
of burden or strain for caregivers that can diminish their quality of life�
�and become passive victims of a difficult situation�
created by a family member.
The rationale of addressing the needs of families/caregivers is two folds:
1.�����Caregivers play a key role in supporting patients towards remission & recovery.
2.�����Families are themselves subject to distress; it is logical that they should receive support & assistance.
Who should attend?
Family members & care givers involved in the treatment & well-being of persons
�living with mental illness & wishing to learn
�about coping mechanisms & boundaries while continuing� to provide loving care .
Limited seats, Pre-registration is required
