What Is Hope for Recovery?
Hope for Recovery is a no-cost one-day workshop for both individuals living with mental illness and family, caregivers, and friends of individuals living with mental illness. It is taught by our Family-to-Family instructors, all of whom have loved ones who live with mental illness. They are traveling this road too.
The workshop is intended to give you an overview of mental illness and help you know what to expect, especially if you are in the early stages of your journey.
- General information about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, and other mental illnesses
- What to do in a crisis
- Tips for navigating the diagnostic assessment process
- Tips for managing the treatment and recovery process
- Communication skills
- Positive boundary setting
- And more
The workshop is an excellent first step in learning how to navigate the challenges of living with mental illness, whether the illness is your own or that of someone you love.
Each class is held at the NAMI Southwest Ohio Training Room in Sharonville. You are welcome to bring your lunch, or you can grab a quick lunch at one of the nearby restaurants during our 45-minute lunch break. Class size is limited to 18.
If you’re looking for more comprehensive information, we highly recommend our 12-week Family-to-Family class (for family members) or our 10-week Peer-to-Peer class (for individuals living with mental illness). There is no cost to attend Family-to-Family and Peer-to-Peer, but we do ask that you register so we can plan accordingly.
