The All IN Peer Support for Families Workshops are designed to offer support for you as you journey on the path of recovery for your family and you.
Our facilitators all have experienced many life challenges e.g. mental health issues, addictions, divorce, death, abuse, etc. and are using those life experiences to share ways that they found useful in their own recovery story. We are not psychologists/counselors/therapists, we are people who have been trained to use our lived experiences to support others and we want to support you.
Maintaining mental health can be hard. Maintaining mental health for yourself while supporting others, can be doubly hard. These workshops were created by facilitators who may share a similar story to you and these workshops just might be that extra support you were looking for.
Please remember you are not alone.
