Taking care of someone with a mental health issue can be isolating and overwhelming. We can connect you with free, one-on-one support from one family member to another, by telephone. Our three-month program matches you with someone whose family member has a similar relationship and diagnosis. Our mentors have “been there,” where you are, and are ready to provide emotional support.
Over the course of 3 months, our Mentor will call you to:
“My mentor is awesome. When I needed the strength to get through the next 5 minutes, she would listen and say, ‘Yes, that sucks.’ She didn’t try to solve, or to minimize. She listened, and she talked about similar experiences, and how she got through them. There was nothing I could say that she hadn’t seen, done, or been through before…there was a lot of comfort in that.” — Karen, parent
