We chose the name All IN for our family support because this definition resonated with us and so many family members we spoke to.

When Talking with Others Might Just be the Additional Support you Need

As part of the Manitoba government's commitment to mental health and peer support, Peer 2 Peer Connections (the peer support division of the Manitoba Schizophrenia Society) and

Robyn Priest LIVE YOUR TRUTH are offering free ONLINE Peer Support for Families and ONLINE Workshops for individuals and family members.

To us, family means family of choice

not just family of origin.

Please remember you are not alone in your family's mental health and addiction journey.

Online All IN Family Support Group

Every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the Month

7:00pm - 8:30pm (CDT)

Online via Zoom 

Coming from the perspective of lived experience, our team assists families in finding solutions and walking beside you on your family's journey to wellness.

This Support Group is open to anyone who is supporting someone with their mental health and addiction struggles. To us, family means what it is to you.

 

“The idea of recovery is approached from a slightly different perspective.  The family member strives to recover from the emotional turmoil, grief, and/or fatigue that may result from caring for someone with a mental health challenge or illness.  The family members path to their own mental wellness or recovery is likely to be enhanced by a better understanding of heir loved one’s illness and through the development of more effective coping skills.  Greater confidence, accepting the situation, and having hope for their loved one will help them to be more effective caregivers and supporters. While also helping them to sustain their own wellbeing."
