BC Schizophrenia Society offering family support meetings in Richmond in March 2020

BC Schizophrenia Society Family Services supports family members of people living with a mental illness.

They are excited to be offering monthly family support meetings at or new location in Richmond at the West Richmond Community Center.

Please join by registering at vanrich@nullbcss.org /phone at 778-838-1886 for our first meeting on February 24 from 6:30-8:00pm!

Family Support Groups are for family members and close friends who are supporting someone with schizophrenia, psychosis or serious mental illness. This helps family members, friends and other caregivers learn more about the current system, and what resources are available for our loved ones. Participants also benefit from collective support of other caregivers. The meetings will be ongoing on the 3rd Monday of each month starting March 16. We look forward to seeing you.

Additional BCSS services include:

Individual Support
• We provide caregivers with support and information and refer to available community resources as required.
